At AAC, we believe that you don’t need to know exactly what you want to do – or who you are – on your first day of school. We’re excited to help you through that process. We’ve started by curating programs we’d love to take. Try just one or two, or tackle them all: It’s your choice.
The AAC maintains a unique 1:2:1 curriculum that optimizes our carefully curated enrollment size to offer the greatest possibility of breadth, depth, collaboration, and personal engagement in art and design throughout the four-year program. Each first year BFA student begins with the First Year Experience (FYE), second and third years provide in-depth learning within a specific discipline accompanied by a wide range of Studio Arts and Liberal Arts electives, then fourth year students from all majors come together in the Senior Pathways Studio experiences to focus on the work that defines them as artists, designers, and writers.
The Senior Thesis is comprised of three essential components:
1.) A comprehensive written statement articulating pertinent issues and concerns in the culminating body of work
2.) Formal Capstone Project
3.) A Culminating Capstone Review
All other majors can be taken as a minor, but these two are exclusive as minors.
Go from zero to ready for anything.
Focus on yourself, for your students.
