Courses Plan of Study

The AAS program is a preprofessional degree program providing the student with the first two years of a four-year bachelor of fine arts course of study. Upon comp­letion, students graduate with an AAS degree and have the option of entering an arts profession or applying for transfer into a four-year BFA program at Pratt or another school of their choice. The program offers a strong foundation, advanced-level art and design courses, and a liberal studies component, all combined to create a comprehensive transfer degree.
