Liberal Arts Studies

The Liberal Arts Studies program includes a broad range of electives which allows students to tailor the program to meet their individual needs. The student with specific career goals may, through selection of electives, design a program to meet specific vocational objectives. The student who plans to transfer into a program in a four-year college, the prerequisites of which are not adequately met in any other program, may tailor the program to meet these requirements.

The program is also offered for those students who do not intend to continue formal studies after the completion of the Associate Degree, but who desire the opportunity to explore occupational courses through electives in such areas as Business Administration or other career path.
