Express Yourself

The M State - Fergus Falls associate in fine arts degree offers students experiences in visual and performing arts disciplines with an emphasis on developing strong portfolios of work and preparing for fine arts study at the university level.

Many students who earn their AFA degree transfer to either a bachelor of arts or bachelor of fine arts program at a four-year college, university or art school. Other students use the knowledge and skills gained in this program to launch careers in the arts.
