Throughout history, no culture has ever persisted without some form of art. The fine arts - painting, sculpture and architecture - express our culture. The applied arts touch an infinite list of things in our environment from packaging, magazines, web design, and television to interior design. A liberal education that does not include familiarity with the history and language of art is lacking. The primary purpose of TCC’s art program is to develop a basic historical, conceptual, and technical education in art. Believing that the artist’s success is dependent on both creative vision and technical expertise, the program encourages excellence, critical inquiry, and experimentation.

University Transfer Degree Information

Students should work closely with an academic advisor each semester to make certain you are enrolled in the correct courses for your degree program, especially if you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university. Students are encouraged to begin a dialogue with their intended transfer schools as early as possible. Early coordination between TCC academic advisors and advisors from selected four-year institutions can streamline the transfer process. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she understands the program/admission/transfer requirements for the transfer school.
