Well i am guessing your at a university? I am at a community college. I was required to take them. I am not an art major and nor would I want to be I just have to take a art class to finish my Basics since its required as a basic. I am only on my 2nd year at this college. supposed to be in my 3rd year btw I am only in class two days a week. But the last time I reg for a art class last semester I didnt stay in class that long and it was art appreciation.
the art wasnt transferable. I am just takng this because its the only one in the art bunch that id ever take. I am a education major well trying to be :)
I didn't HAVE to take them in high school (however, I did, all four years) and I know a lot of schools can't make students take art, they simply don't have the budget for you. I was asking because art classes in college are that long, so since you have never taken art classes that lasted around the same length made me wonder if you've taken a college art class. Usually HS art classes dont transfer...but if your counselor (im assuming your college one) says it's ok then I guess it is. Just not something you'd see in my current art program.
