Students majoring in Art at Sinclair Community College are well prepared to transfer to art schools and four-year colleges/universities. As a university parallel program, the A.A. degree in Art corresponds to the first two years of study required for a four-year baccalaureate degree and allows students to transfer to four-year colleges/universities and stand-alone art schools to pursue the baccalaureate degree and beyond. The A.A. degree program in Art is university parallel and it includes the Ohio Transfer Module. Upon completion of the A.A. degree program, students may transfer as juniors to four-year colleges/universities and stand-alone art schools in Ohio and nationally.
In addition to the A.A. degree program in Art, the Art Department also offers short-term certificate programs in Photographic Technology and Drawing.
The Art Department is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). This is a significant achievement for a community college since very few community colleges have been granted NASAD accreditation nationwide.
Three rotating galleries with a regular exhibition schedule on the Sinclair Community College campus provide students and the public with visual stimulation and inspiration.
