Liberal Arts Program Overview 

The Liberal Arts Program provides a general education in the traditional areas of knowledge, regardless of the student’s career choice. In addition, the student has the opportunity for additional study in a particular discipline in selected fields to explore its methods, acquire its tools, and gain a mastery of its body of knowledge.

For the student whose career choice is not clearly defined, the Liberal Arts Program, leading to the Associate in Arts degree, provides an opportunity to explore selected areas in the humanities, the arts, and the social and behavioral sciences. Some students develop interest in a particular career and transfer after graduation for further educational preparation
