Build an Academic Career in the Arts

Scottsdale Community College is an excellent option when looking to start an academic career in the arts. We are more affordable than most regional Universities. We have exemplary studio spaces and instructors who are dedicated teachers with decades of teaching experience. At Scottsdale Community College, you can complete your art foundations courses with instructors who have been teaching for 5, 10, or even 20 years, not grad students who were assigned a class two weeks before the start of the semester. Our adjunct instructors are also professionals working in the fields they teach classes in. When it comes to learning, experience matters.

We also offer scholarships covering up to a full semester’s tuition. Come in and meet our community. We’d love to show you around.
