Earn your associate of arts degree online

You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students

Students enrolled in this program have an excellent opportunity to explore the various social and behavioral sciences while completing requirements in other academic areas such as the humanities, mathematics, and biological and physical sciences. The Social Science curriculum is an excellent transfer program since it parallels the first two years of most baccalaureate liberal arts programs. Most graduates are able to transfer with sufficient credits to complete their bachelor's degree in two additional years of full-time study. The Social Science curriculum is an excellent starting point for students interested in careers in teaching (elementary, secondary, and college), pre-professional programs (such as law and medicine), business, government, social work, non-profit organizations, and international agencies.

What's an associate degree?
An associate degree usually takes two years of study and prepares students for employment or transfer to a bachelor’s program at a four-year university.
