Liberal Arts and Sciences: Humanities and Social Sciences - A.S.

Associate Dean, Division of Humanities and Social Sciences

Associate in Science Degree, Transfer Program

This program is highly transferable and provides flexibility and exploration in a wide variety of studies since it contains many free electives. The training in disciplines under the general category of liberal arts is also excellent preparation for many traditional careers, including medicine, dentistry, law, teaching, business, international studies, mass media, mass communications, health, physical education, and recreation. Students can choose to concentrate in an area that matches their interests, or they can develop a curriculum to suit a unique academic goal not met by any other program.

By following a rigorous liberal arts and sciences curriculum, graduates will have developed capabilities in academic research and writing; an ability to apply scientific method and critical thinking skills to validate their own ideas and inquiries; sufficient math skills to deal with complex problems; an awareness and appreciation of living in a culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse society.
