This article presents the results of a study about the attitudes by the learners from a bachelor in basic education with emphasis on arts, in Colombia, regarding the quality of academic management of this program. The importance of this study appears considers that its results will be useful to contrast the agreement or disagreement between the components of the management of quality, declared by bachelor programs, and recognized by the National Ministry of Education, and valued as satisfactory, based on the students' attitudes. All this will result in the development of analysis, design and execution of strategies which make possible the survival of the bachelor program, in an environment of governmental requirements on management of academic quality, and demands by the learners, which were not explicit before. The development of this project followed the survey method, with application of a questionnaire with the Likert's scale, with 20 variables and 7 assessment items. The population consisted of 380 students who were registered in the second semester of 2017, and the sample, not representative and selected with convenience, was of 33 learners. The results show satisfactory variables such as 1) contribution on social, political and cultural development; 2) existence of teaching criterion of artistic languages; 3) commitment to the training of qualified teachers; and 4) interdisciplinary nature. The other variables were valued as unsatisfactory. Of the total number of students surveyed, 39.4% demonstrates an attitude of recognition of the bachelor as a program with academic quality; and a 60.6% has an explicit attitude of non-recognition.
