Associate in Science Transfer Programs (Art and Design, Theater, and Teacher Education)

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.
