General Education: Arts

The Associate of Arts degree is a program that serves a dual purpose:

  • It provides the first two years of general study to students who plan to transfer to a baccalaureate program and work toward a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science.
  • It provides two years of general studies to individuals who desire a structured, non-technical degree program to gain employment or to secure a promotion in employment.
