Associate of Arts - General Studies
Broaden Your Mind with an Associate of Arts Degree
A student in the Associate of Arts program takes the crucial step of pursuing higher education, which helps one make personal and professional dreams a reality. The Associate of Arts program allows students to gain knowledge and critical thinking skills beneficial in the workforce before they decide whether or not to invest the time and resources necessary for a bachelor’s degree. As students in the program get acclimated to going back to college or attending college for the first time, they acquire a general knowledge base in liberal arts that provides a foundation for lifetime learning, whether that includes further education or a new career path.
In the Associate of Arts in General Studies program, general education courses complement each other so that students receive a well-rounded education including knowledge that can be applied and discussed in daily life. In addition to broad-based liberal arts courses, the curriculum includes biblical studies classes, which help shape an individual not only as a student but as an entire person. Upon completion of the Associate of Arts program, individuals will be prepared to demonstrate versatility and a strong work ethic in any area of life, including work, school and family.
