*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to a minimum of 64 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Transfer Pattern Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this transfer pattern, students will be able to:
- apply formal foundation arts principles when creating visual art and design;
- produce creative and professional visual art and design using both traditional and digital media; and
- integrate both two and three dimensional visualization techniques when solving design problems.
Transfer Pattern Description:
This Association of Arts (A.A.) degree pattern in Humanities and Social Sciences is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a baccalaureate degree with a major in Art (B.A.) or Fine Arts (B.F.A.). Beyond the General Education requirements and other degree requirements, program requirements, and electives, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with an Art coordinator for information about specific requirements.
It is strongly recommended that students who wish to pursue studies in these transfer patterns speak with the Art program coordinators before registering for courses. The sequence of courses should be adjusted to meet the requirements of the transfer institutions. The CCBC Art program is administered at CCBC Catonsville and Essex. Art classes are offered on all CCBC campuses.
NOTE: Although these patterns follow a two-year plan, students who work more than 15 hours per week or have other major obligations outside of school are advised to take fewer courses each semester over a longer period of time. Students who work 25 hours or more are advised to take 12 credits or less each semester.
The mission of the Art program of The Community College of Baltimore County is to provide students with opportunities to experience and learn about a broad spectrum of art (from the two-dimensional art of painting and drawing and three dimensional art of sculpture and ceramics to such computer based art as design and interactive media); to partner with students in developing technical skills necessary to communicate through art and to articulate the knowledge of art; and to inspire students to participate in art activities and to foster the intellectual, creative, and spiritual growth and appreciation of artists by instilling in them a commitment to artistic and personal excellence.
