If you're unsure of the next step along your educational path, General Arts and Science provides a firm foundation on which to build your options. Small class sizes and individual attention let you explore directions in a supportive environment before committing to college or degree studies. Academic advisors and course professors will guide you as you transition to postsecondary studies.
This program equips you with the tools you need to move forward, including critical thinking and writing skills, along with broad academic instruction in social sciences, literature and math. It's an ideal way to explore your path before deciding on a destination. Based on your first semester achievements and educational goals, you will choose a second semester program leading to a college diploma program or to degree studies.
If your goal is a college program, General Arts and Science will help you to get there, as well as maximizing your transfer credits. Students who complete two semesters receive the General Arts and Science College Transfer certificate.
If your sights are set on degree studies, use your second semester to explore different fields in the humanities and social sciences. Students may choose to apply to a degree program after their second semester* or continue to the second year of the program to maximize their choices and their potential transfer credits. Students who complete two semesters receive the General Arts and Science University Transfer certificate; students who complete four semesters receive the General Arts and Science diploma.
