Program Description

In addition to the core curriculum, the Associate of Science Degree in Liberal Arts requires completion of 12 hours of credit in a discipline or combination of disciplines determined by the student in consultation with a faculty advisor, for a total of 60 credit hours. This flexibility in the degree plan makes the AS in Liberal Arts an attractive option for students who have changed majors or who needed to explore various possibilities before deciding on a major field of study.

The faculty who teach in the Liberal Arts areas—including one Vice President and a Dean, as well as the current faculty senate president—hold advanced degrees from major universities, are highly decorated for teaching and professional excellence, publish widely and in various fields and perform important leadership roles on the campus and in the local communities of our service area.
