Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: » Programs of Study

Program outcomes: Students successfully completing this program will have completed a core of courses that satisfies general education requirements for the first two years of study at most regionally accredited colleges and universities. Most students will acquire sufficient knowledge that the institutional average score of graduating students on recognized tests of general education competencies will equal or exceed the national average among institutions of similar description and mission.

This program is designed for students who intend to transfer to senior institutions of higher education to complete requirements for bachelor of arts degrees. The general transfer major is subdivided into “emphasis” presented on the following pages. Students desiring other curricula (e.g., History, Sociology, Law, Dramatic Arts, Languages, English, Liberal Arts, etc.) may design their own programs within the framework of the following general requirements. If the student intends to transfer upon completion of the associate of arts degree, he/she should consult the academic advisor and refer to the senior institution catalog before beginning one of the emphasis.
