College of Arts and Sciences

Associate in Arts

The two-year Associate of Arts focuses on the knowledge and skills upon which nearly all four-year degrees are based. You study a broad range of topics with other adults – all with a focus on real-life application with no “busy work.” Weekly classes with professors, 24/7 access to online tutoring, and the support of fellow students have enabled busy professionals like you to complete their degrees and progress towards their educational goals. The Evening program offers focused courses spanning five weeks – and then you are on to your next course. Even those topics you found challenging in the past are manageable through this approach.
