Associate in Arts Pathway
The Associate in Arts College Transfer Pathway provides up to 32-33 credit hours leading to the Associate in Arts and is designed for high school juniors and seniors who wish to begin study toward the Associate in Arts degree and a baccalaureate degree in a non-STEM major (something other than science, technology, engineering, or mathematics).
High school juniors and seniors are eligible to enroll if they (a) have a weighted GPA of at least 3.0 on high school courses and (b) demonstrate college readiness in English, reading, and mathematics. Students are not obligated to complete a pathway or to take classes in a particular order, except in the case of prerequisites.
Graduates of the Associate in Arts Program will be able to:
- Demonstrate thinking that is clear, accurate, precise, relevant, logical, deep, broad, and fair, while analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating – Critical Thinking
- Produce writing that is clear, precise, organized, incisive, and correct (according to the guidelines of Standard Written English) for a variety of purposes and audiences – Writing
- Read actively and analytically at the college level and synthesize and apply information across disciplines – Reading
- Speak in a manner that is clear, precise, coherent, perceptive, audience-aware, and correct (according to SWE) in both small and large group settings – Speaking
- Recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information – Information Literacy
The Associate in Arts is also available online. Online degree students follow the same degree requirements and program learning outcomes as students earning the degree in the traditional format. Though not all transfer courses offered on campus are also offered online, enough are offered via distance to earn the full degree in two years.
