Overview


The Art Department is committed to the value of the arts to all academic studies and offers courses for both majors and non-majors. Students who intend to transfer should be aware that they may be required to present a portfolio of work. Your advisor can provide guidance for you to prepare the portfolio. Students who take courses in the department have the opportunity for their work to be featured in the Skagit Valley College Annual Juried Student Exhibition. Students can also receive credit for working with arts programs and organizations in the community.

Sample Career Options


Transfer


This degree is intended to prepare students to transfer to Washington State University with junior standing with most of the prerequisites for an art major completed. This degree partially fulfills the general education requirements (GERs) for four-year transfer. You may need to take additional GERs at WSU. Completion of the AVA does not guarantee admission as an art major with junior standing. Admission into the WSU Art department is competitive. A competitive GPA and a quality portfolio are essential to compete for admission into the major. Students are strongly advised to select and plan courses with their Art department advisor.

The Associates of Visual Arts, AVA, degree transfers to Washington State University under an articulation agreement.
