Arts

Program Description:  The Associate of Arts degree in Arts is intended to match, within the constraints of the Core Curriculum, the course of study for the first two years of a typical arts program at a four-year college or university. It also provides the flexibility for students desiring only an associate degree to specialize the program to individual interests.
