The Liberal Arts and Science - Humanities and Social Science degree parallels the first two years of a baccalaureate level program in the liberal arts.

A foundation of core courses allows you to discover a breadth of knowledge and electives can help you focus on a particular field of study for transfer.

The majority of students graduating from this program continue their education at a four-year college or university. If you are considering liberal arts study, you may be eligible to take part in the college's rigorous HonorScholar program, which offers honors-level, seminar style coursework.

This program is offered by the Liberal Arts Department.
