Associate in Arts, Liberal Arts

General

Program Description

The Liberal Arts curriculum provides the core liberal arts component of most bachelor’s degree programs and prepares students for transfer to four-year colleges or universities. The interdisciplinary curriculum is well-suited for students who are either undecided about their major or who are seeking a broad, general education before narrowing the focus of their course of study. After completing this program, students will be well-positioned to pursue any number of different Bachelor of Arts programs at four-year institutions. Since the curriculum requirements of other institutions vary, students should meet with a transfer advisor at DCCC to obtain information concerning entrance requirements for the specific school and program in which they are interested in.

Program Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this curriculum, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate sound critical thinking, information literacy, and technological competency in the production of academic writing and presentations.
  • Demonstrate quantitative and scientific reasoning when investigating and solving abstract and material problems.
  • Demonstrate an awareness of the social, political, and economic forces which shape individuals, institutions, and communities in the modern world.
  • Critically engage with aesthetic expressions of human experience.
