Program Description

The Liberal Arts curriculum has a dual purpose. The courses provide students subject matter enabling them to transfer to a four-year college or university. However, the curriculum is also designed to provide general education for those who desire it.

The Associate in Arts requirements are designed to give students a balanced distribution of courses in English, humanities and social sciences. The Associate in Science requirements are designed to give a student a balance between mathematics and laboratory sciences. These programs have been formulated to ensure a maximum level of acceptance for the transfer student regardless of the program for which he/she applies at a four-year institution.

Students interested in a flexible exploratory course of study and the option of a self-structured curriculum may pursue Liberal Arts - General Studies. This program offers the student a course of study leading to an Associate in Science degree and an opportunity to experience courses in other curricula.
