Associate of Arts
The Associate of Arts (A.A.) in General Education is designed to introduce students to the challenges and rewards of college level work and to the core skills of professional careers. Its courses expose students to a broad range of subjects, including written and oral communication, liberal studies, mathematics, history, art, philosophy, social sciences, and natural sciences. The program’s outcomes emphasize key intellectual skills which transcend disciplinary boundaries and which are essential for the successful college undergraduate. Upon successful completion of the A.A. program, students will have a solid preparation for further undergraduate study at the bachelor’s level and for the baseline needs and expectations of the contemporary American workplace.
