The college offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (BFA) in fine arts, graphic design, illustration, and photography.

They offer a learning environment and support system composed of a small community of professional artists that have real world experience. The majority of students succeed in finding art-related jobs or pursue advanced education immediately following graduation.
