Associate in Science Transfer Programs (Advised Career Pathways)

CIP CODE: 24.0102

The aim of the Liberal Arts General Studies (LAGS) Program is to provide students with a broader range of curricular choices so that, under the guidance of faculty advisers, they can align their Associate degrees more closely with programs at senior institutions. The intent is to allow students with clear academic and/or career goals to structure their Associate degree programs so as to transfer as juniors to senior colleges, needing only four additional semesters to complete the baccalaureate degree. General Education courses totaling 30 to 34 credits are required of General Studies (AS) students, leaving a like number of elective credits. The total number of credits needed to fulfill the LAGS degree program credit hour requirement for students is 64.

Program Learning Outcomes:

  1. Possess a strong foundation in the skills needed to be proficient in theater arts, whether it is as an actor/performer, or as a person involved in stage management, theater administration or technical theater.
  2. Demonstrate performance skills as actors in live drama and musical works from a wide array of dramatic literature by participating in the acting, or rehearsal and performance classes, and by participating in productions as a member of the Little Theater Players.
  3. Build a strong foundation in the computer technologies associated with the entertainment industry including those technologies that will become more utilized in the burgeoning world of the internet
  4. Incorporate a commitment to theater as a Liberal Art that helps to develop cultural, moral, civic, and social sensibilities for a fuller participation in the world at large.
  5. Develop the valuable assets of confidence, creativity, and communication skills through the study and practice of theater for non-majors.  Through examining the work of the major playwrights and artists, students' historic, empathetic and artistic sensibilities are heightened.
