The Art Department of South Texas College, through excellent teaching and service to our community, promotes an enhanced awareness of the role of art in our society. Our purpose is to provide a stimulating environment that encourages lifelong learning, promotes cultural awareness, and enriches the quality of life in Hidalgo and Starr counties through creativity and study.

The Associate of Arts in Fine Arts with a Visual Arts Concentration and the Associate of Arts in Graphic Arts are programs of study that combine studio courses in art and design with a broad range of liberal arts courses. Both two-year degree programs prepare students for creative positions in the workforce, and provide skills, values, and knowledge in the liberal and creative arts. Additionally, students are prepared for transfer into university bachelor's degree programs and are trained in exhibit and portfolio preparation.
