Liberal Arts (AS) Associate of Science

Purpose Statement

This degree is recommended for students who plan to pursue bachelor of science degrees in fields for which no specific associate degree is offered or for students who have collected hours in a variety of disciplines, perhaps by changing majors.

This is a recommended curriculum only. Some courses may be taken in different order and students do not have to complete the degree in four semesters. All interested students should see the Arts and Sciences Division director for a degree plan.
