About Our Division

Student Awards & Recognition 2021

Each year, Fine Arts & Communication Division faculty choose students with much deliberation to receive awards for reasons more than grades or test scores.

We recognize that these students often inspire others, produce works that exude their passions and/or overcome enormous obstacles and barriers to achieve success in college. Due to the pandemic, we opted to create a webpage to introduce this year's 2021 awards — virtually.  

We invite you to view student awards by department with faculty video introductions for each honored student!

What We Offer

Choose from a broad range of degree and certificate programs, including associate degrees for transfer, in communication and the fine and practical arts.

Visit our academic department websites listed below for course catalog, degree & certificate and class schedule information.
