The Associate in Arts Degree in Liberal Arts offers the equivalent of the first two years in a four-year baccalaureate program. (It is recommended that students identify the college to which they plan to transfer as soon as possible.) A faculty advisor works with each student to design the program that best meets the student's future plans. Students selecting the Liberal Arts degree should be dedicated to a major in one of the Liberal Arts disciplines. The program requires 64 credits of associate degree level coursework in not only a coherent and substantive balance of English, mathematics, the sciences, the arts and humanities, and the social sciences, but also a major consisting of a minimum of 32 credit in specialty courses. Initial design will be declared at entrance admission interview with program director; ongoing assessment and revision of the design will be encouraged.
Requirements of the four-year college to which students plan to transfer will guide some of their selections; the future plans and areas of interest of each student will also contribute to each student's program design.
Upon completion of the Liberal Arts program, the student should have an academic background sufficient to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program. The College has transfer agreements for Liberal Art students with Keene State College, New England College, Plymouth State University, Granite State College, and the University of New Hampshire. Associate in Arts graduates have also transferred to the University of Massachusetts, Franklin Pierce, Granite State College, the University of Maine, Lyndon State College, Yale University, Daniel Webster College, Colby Sawyer College, New England College, Lyndon State College, Castleton State College, Elms College, LeMoyne College, Antioch New England and Mount Holyoke College.
