Student working on an art project.

The Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts is designed for the student who wishes to earn a well-rounded education by studying general subjects or choosing a particular area of emphasis. Employers recognize that while some degrees provide specialized training in a specific field, a liberal arts degree often provides a much broader educational background and skills. These skills, particularly the enhanced communications skills, are applicable to almost any job. Students wishing to transfer to four-year institutions will have the academic foundation applicable to various career fields, such as management, communications specializations, technical communications, education, and research. For more information regarding the Liberal Arts, AA, see the Liberal Arts webpage.

Note: For a course to be eligible for transfer, the student must receive a “C” or better. Acceptance of a transfer course is determined by the receiving institution.
