Associate of Arts

 The associate of arts degree program provides students with a broad academic education to prepare them for the workplace and for upper-level university study. The degree requirements for the associate of arts may be met through LCCC’s university transfer courses or by taking university transfer courses at other recognized colleges and/or universities. Since requirements at transfer institutions vary widely, students should consult the catalog of the transfer institution and plan their program with a college counselor.

Select from the general education/transfer module:

  • Arts and Humanities – Nine credit hours, representing two different disciplines. 
  • English composition – Six credit hours. 
  • Mathematics and science – Three credit hours in mathematics and six credit hours in science, of which one course must include a lab (indicated in the listing with an L). 
  • Social Sciences – Nine credit hours, representing two different disciplines.

Completion of the required number of credit hours represents 33 of the 36-40 credit hours in the general education/transfer module. To complete this requirement, a student must take another six to seven credit hours from the general education/transfer module courses. Students must complete a minimum of 60 credit hours to complete the associate of arts degree. Therefore, a student may earn the associate of arts degree by completing the general education/transfer module requirements of 36-40 credit hours, SDEV 101, for one credit hour and additional elective credit hours selected from the general education/transfer module courses or any other courses to complete a minimum of 60 credit hours. Choices within these ranges will require careful academic planning and advice. Students should seek assistance from a counselor or advisor before proceeding.
