ASSOCIATE IN FINE ARTS

Liberal Arts Division

Rend Lake College offers courses applicable to an Associate in Fine Arts Degree. This degree will require a total of 64 credit hours. General Education courses are described in the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum. Because completion of the A.F.A. curriculum does not fulfill the requirements of the Illinois General Education Core, students will need to complete the general education requirements of the institution to which they transfer. Consult with your counselor or music faculty advisor for more information.
