Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts, A.A

Program Description

The Liberal Arts program is a flexible, transfer-oriented curriculum for students who want to complete a broad-based liberal arts foundation before majoring in a particular discipline. Traditionally, the Liberal Arts include language, philosophy, literature, history, and the physical sciences. The Liberal Arts program is designed to meet the core requirements of most four-year liberal arts colleges, offering a wide range of program options that allow for specialization during the first two years of college.

Besides being a basis for many other programs, it is the center of several programs which serve as Liberal Arts options: Early Childhood Elementary Education, Education, Graphic Design, Music and Theatre Arts, Psychology, Sociology, and Visual Arts. It is an ideal preparation for a well-rounded general education, allowing students to experience various academic disciplines before settling on a major after transfer.
