Associate in Arts


The Associate in Arts is often classified as the Liberal Arts* “transfer degree” in that it provides the student with a broad exposure to the arts and sciences.

Each candidate for the degree must complete 60 semester hours of credit. Of these, 54 credits must be earned in the liberal arts, according to a prescribed plan covering the humanities, social/behavioral sciences, philosophy, theology/religious studies, and natural sciences/mathematics. The remaining 6 semester hours are allotted to free electives. Applicants who have attended other accredited colleges may transfer up to 30 credits for applicable courses in which a grade of C or better was earned.
