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.

Concentration Component

Students in the Liberal Arts Program select one of the available concentrations. The 12 credits in the selected concentration, together with the 21 credits in the Common Core, 24 credits in Liberal Arts Content Specialty Courses, and 3 elective credits constitute the 60-credit requirement for the Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts.

Theatre Arts Concentration Overview

The Theatre Arts Concentration develops knowledge, skill, and conservatory training in acting, singing, dancing, and theatrical design and technology. The Program provides a broad range of experiences in multiple classes and shows, enabling students to prepare for careers in theatre, film, television, internet, and other multi-media productions that incorporate comedy, tragedy, drama, musicals, and video. Close to New York City, the Theatre Program utilizes the proximity by regularly inviting professional guest directors from Broadway and movies to direct our productions and offer master classes.
