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
Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degree
The Associate in Arts graduate is prepared for transfer with advanced standing to a baccalaureate program where additional professional training may be undertaken. Advisors should be consulted for assistance in the selection of programs and electives geared to personal educational goals.
