Visual Art Emphasis Illinois colleges and universities offer two different bachelor's degrees in art: the professional Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree and the Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) degree with a major in art. In general, the B.F. A. degree requires about 135 semester credits for completion, while the B.A. degree with a major in art requires 120 to 124 semester credits for completion. The B.F.A. degree generally requires more studio art courses than does the B.A. degree. In some colleges and universities, a B.A. degree requires competency in a foreign language, while the B.F.A. degree often does not.


Associate in Engineering Science (AES) Program Description Catalog Year: 2019 Bachelor's engineering programs are highly structured to meet the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) standards required for candidates seeking Illinois registration as a professional engineer. The Associate in Engineering Science (AES) Degree is designed to parallel the first two years of pre-engineering programs at most Illinois universities and facilitates students transferring into a bachelor's engineering program with junior standing. Due to the rigor of the AES curriculum, it is ideal for students to have taken a fourth course of math in high school, or at least have an aptitude in science and math.


The degree is designed for transfer to four year institutions and intended for students majoring in Art/Commercial Art, Behaviorial Sciences, Communications, Criminal Justice, Education, Foreign Languages, Home Economics (Consumer and Family Studies), Humanities, Liberal Arts, Music, Pre-Law, Social Sciences and Theatre.
