University Parallel Programs

The Associate of Arts degree is awarded for successful completion of a course sequence. The areas of focus within this division are referred to as programs of study and are used only as a suggested guide in course selection. The advisor will follow the university catalog curricula in order to ensure transfer of earned credits. To graduate, a student must complete the core requirements and other courses for a total of 62 semester hours. The first advisor listed under each program of study is the curriculum coordinator.
