Associate of Arts General Concentration Information

This concentration is designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or university and is the equivalent of the freshman and sophomore years of a Bachelor of Arts Degree program. For students who do not have a decided interest in one field of study, the concentration provides a broad knowledge of liberal arts. Elective courses give the student the flexibility to choose from a number of transferable courses.
