Associate of Arts Degree
The Associate of Arts (AA) program provides a substantial liberal arts education as a base for upper division specialization. Most students who graduate from Armstrong with an AA degree eventually go on to pursue a baccalaureate degree.
Who majors in the AA?
- Students who wish to complete the core curriculum at Armstrong before transferring to another university to pursue a bachelor's degree
- Students who wish to complete the core curriculum before entering a professional degree program (such as nursing or teacher education) at Armstrong
- Students, especially non-traditional students, who attend Armstrong part-time and who value formal recognition of their achievements as they progress toward a baccalaureate degree
- General Requirements (Core Areas A, B, C, D, and E)
- 18 hours of electives (which must include COMM 2280: Speech Communication)
- 2 hours of Physical Education courses
Students planning work toward a baccalaureate degree should select courses for their electives that meet listed requirements (in most cases, Area F requirements) of that degree program.
We realize that every job is different. This sample schedule shows how students pursuing an Associate of Arts degree may arrange classes around a busy work schedule.
The AA degree is also available through the Liberty Center in Hinesville, Georgia. For further information, please contact the Liberty Center by calling 912.877.1906
