Create Something Unique Through Art

3.1.4_Art_Body_1.pngAt Normandale, we believe art is for everyone. We foster each student’s individuality and growth through degree programs that embody both excellence and value. As an art student here, you have options. There are two transfer art programs available, depending on what path in art you choose to take.  

Both require 60 credits and once all requirements are complete, you will be able to transfer to a 4-year Minnesota State university as a junior. 

Art Transfer Pathway (AFA) 

  • A pre-professional art degree intended for entrance into a BFA program  
  • Capstone exhibition is required 
  • 40 credits in art courses and 20 credits to fulfill MNTC requirements 

Art Transfer Pathway (AA) with Emphasis in Art 

  • A liberal education degree with an emphasis in art, intended for entrance into a BA program 
  • No application required  
  • 40 credits to fulfill MNTC requirements and 20 credits in art courses 

Where Will Art Take You?

You’ll build a solid foundation in your study and practice of art. Whether you are studying art as a part of a larger liberal arts education, or if you want to become a professional artist working in a studio — Normandale is a great place to begin building a path to your career in art.  

"The faculty here are just amazing. You really get that one-on-one time, and they foster a community experience in the classroom that helps the learning. The attention and dedication they give are incredible, and they also have accomplished careers in the field.”

Abby Sunde, Class of ‘22 , Normandale art student
