Program Description & Outcomes:  

Program Description: For majors, the Associate of Fine Arts in Visual Studies is a unique interdisciplinary studio arts degree. The AFA degree provides students with fundamental competencies in artistic practice, critical thinking, and creative problem solving. These core themes are applied to material, process, historical context, concept, and critical theory. The program utilizes innovative practices and technologies in the visual arts and creative industry while fostering professional networks and engaging in dialog with communities on a global level. Students, in collaboration with faculty, design a curricular emphasis specific to their professional career goals. The entrepreneurial and professional practices component of this degree prepares students for success at every level. Students completing this competitive and demanding AFA program will leave with a keenly developed sensibility and skill set, and are prepared to successfully transfer to a senior institution and engage with an evolving creative industry.

Department’s webpage: www.snow.edu/encs 
Department’s catalog page: www.snow.edu/catalog/dept_encs.html 

Program Description & Outcomes:  

The Associate of Pre-Engineering (APE) degree is offered to students who plan to transfer to a university and pursue a baccalaureate degree in any of the traditional fields of engineering. This degree requires an emphasis of course work in engineering, mathematics, and science; with fewer general education requirements than that required for the associate of science (AS) or the associate of arts (AA) degree. However, it is recommended that a student earn the AS as well as the APE while at Snow College. These additional general education credits can be acquired by transfer of college credit taken while in high school, by taking credits during May-Mester or summer term, or by transferring credits back to Snow College from the university. The option of taking some general education classes at the upper division level in the university is consistent with recent Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) standards.

Course work for the APE degree must include the completion of a minimum of 64 semester credit hours as specified below. (At least 21 semester hours must be resident credit earned at Snow College.) Credit may be transferred from any accredited college or university for which course equivalents have been certified. The minimum grade accepted from transfer credit is C- (1.7). A cumulative grade point average of 2.0 must be earned on course work completed at Snow College.
