Arts & Sciences

The Division of Arts & Sciences offers students the opportunity to obtain an Associate of Arts (AA) degree or an Associate of Science (AS) degree or to fulfill a common core of General Education distribution requirements while pursuing an Applied Associate degree.

For the AA/AS degrees, students complete a broad distribution of approved courses following state guidelines. Courses must be selected from the inventory of approved AA/AS courses listed in this section of the catalog. Focused concentration areas are available in the following disciplines: Business; English Writing/Literature; History; Psychology; and Sociology.

For all students, the Arts & Sciences Division provides a background in written composition, humanities, social and behavioral sciences, physical and biological sciences, and mathematics. Employers require employees who can contribute to the local community—and to humanity as well—as experts in their specialized fields. Arts & Sciences courses are structured to provide the background, skills, insights and breadth of knowledge which will be pertinent to students, their employers and their community.
