Associate of Arts Degree
Code: 648
Transfer Program

Purpose: The associate of arts in liberal arts degree program is designed for those who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a baccalaureate degree program, usually the Bachelor of Arts degree, in the liberal arts or social sciences, especially in the fields of economics, education, English, foreign languages, political science, history, humanities, international relations, journalism, literature, philosophy, pre-law, psychology, religion, and sociology.

Graduation Requirement: 1. Students entering all degree programs are required to take one Writing Intensive Course (WIC), which has a pre-requisite of ENG 111  and ENG 112 , in order to graduate. Approved Writing Intensive Courses are specified with a “WI” section designation. 2. Beginning in Fall 2020, students in all degree programs are required to take at least one Civic Engagement course to graduate.

Although a course fulfills a requirement for a PVCC program, it is possible the course will not fulfill a requirement at a four-year institution. Students who plan to transfer need to be aware of the four-year institution’s requirements.

Total minimum credits: 61

Foreign language Elective: Students who have satisfactorily completed two years of foreign language in high school may test for advanced placement into the second year of the foreign language.

Literature Transfer Elective: Choose one course from the following options:  ENG 241 , ENG 242 ENG 243 , ENG 244 ENG 251 , ENG 252 , ENG 253 , ENG 254 , or ENG 255 . This course will meet the Writing Intensive Course (WIC) requirements for this degree.

Introductory (101 or 102 level) foreign language courses will not meet the humanities elective requirement for this program.
