Arts and Sciences, A.A.


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The Associate degree in Arts and Sciences is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution with a concentration in either arts and humanities or math and science. Following admission to the college, students should consult with an advisor to design a program of study that meets their transfer needs. This program is suited best to students who do not know what their precise major will be after transfer.

Students who are more definite about what their major will be after transfer should plan to earn an Arts and Sciences Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degree in one of many discipline-specific options. Descriptions of the Arts and Sciences degree options are listed alphabetically throughout the Programs of Study  section of this catalog.
