Liberal Arts and Sciences, A.A.


The Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum has been designed to be flexible and also allows students who change career choices, decide to explore new career choices or who have transferred credits from other schools to put together a program of liberal arts study for transfer to a four-year school. The Liberal Arts and Sciences program is also appropriate for students wishing to earn a high school equivalency diploma while enrolled in college; however, financial aid is not available to students in this situation.

The program has been designed to provide balance and breadth in the structured portion of the curriculum so that students are exposed to the major discipline areas within the traditional liberal arts. Latitude exists through liberal arts elective selection to explore various disciplines and complete an associate's degree.

Program Goals and Objectives

  • Track retention and transfer to other programs from LAS;
  • Create suggested tracks for LAS majors intending to transfer;
  • Create capstone course and digital portfolio system.


LAS is such a broad program, this category is hard to narrow down. Currently, in ENG 103, students are doing problem analysis of on-campus problems they have identified. I think this is the kind of thing that represents LAS going forward.
