Associate of Arts Degree
The Associate of Arts (AA) Degree provides students with a general liberal arts education that prepares them for transfer into a bachelor degree program at a four-year college or university. Students looking to transfer with guaranteed junior standing in a specific field of study should pursue an associate of arts degree with designation in the following areas: anthropology, art history, business, communication, criminal justice, economics, early childhood education, elementary education, English (literature) emphasis, French, geography, history, music, philosophy, political science, psychology, sociology, Spanish, studio art, and theater.
More information on these degree plans can be found in the Associate Degrees with Designation section of this catalog.
While a student may tailor the generic Associate of Arts (AA) Degree to prepare for specific transfer options, all official documents and diplomas issued by the college will only indicate the awarding of an Associate of Arts Degree without any indication of a more specific area of study unless the student completes the requirements for one of the areas of designation noted above.
