Associate in Arts


The General Studies Associate Degree with an emphasis in the Social & Behavioral Sciences provides an opportunity for students to design a program of study meaningful and appropriate to their own needs and academic interests. The degree, which is multidisciplinary in nature, seeks to provide an understanding of the interrelationships, principles and methodologies of its many subject areas and to provide a broad understanding of the diverse social and cultural world in which we live. While an associate degree may support attempts to gain entry-level employment or promotion, a baccalaureate or higher degree is recommended for those considering professional careers, pursuit of which can be achieved through transfer.
