Liberal education is intended to sharpen intelligence and to foster growth of personal values. The suggested liberal arts and sciences sequences outlined below provide the broad foundation for those students who plan to transfer for a bachelor’s degree. The program may also be used as a basis in professional studies such as education, medicine and health, dentistry, pharmacy, law, or business administration. For graduation, students must complete coursework totaling not less than sixty-one (61) credit hours.
Because students need to be aware of specific requirements of those colleges to which they hope to transfer, the Liberal Arts and Sciences Program requires that students seek the advice of a college counselor and faculty advisor, and they must obtain a current catalog from the four-year institution of their choice.
General Education Core course listings and definitions appear on General Education Core . Placement testing will determine the sequencing of courses. Additional courses may be required.
Liberal Arts graduates may successfully continue their studies at colleges and universities with majors such as:
With good planning, students may transfer into many other majors as well. Students will work primarily on Core Requirements of transfer colleges, and may also begin to fulfill course requirements in a major, by choosing liberal arts and general electives in their chosen discipline. As a first step, students should refer to the Liberal Arts and Sciences definitions, “General Education Core ,” and then to the appropriate course descriptions.
It is very important to work closely with an advisor when selecting these courses. The concentration may serve your immediate interest or needs, but the college to which you are transferring makes the final determination as to which courses it will accept.
