MISSION

The mission of the Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts degree is to prepare students to successfully transfer to a four-year baccalaureate degree program. An advisor works with each student to design the program that best meets the student’s goals. Requirements of the four-year college will guide some of the course selections made by the student. Future plans and personal areas of interest will also contribute to each student’s program design.

In order to achieve the Liberal Arts mission, the program provides students with a broad academic experience in areas of arts, humanities, mathematics, natural and physical sciences, and social sciences. The Liberal Arts Department fosters a community of self-reliant learners in a rigorous academic environment. Liberal Arts faculty provide challenging courses designed to instill scholarly curiosity, social responsibility, and a lifelong quest for learning while cultivating an environment of mutual respect and collegiality.

PROGRAM OUTCOMES

Upon completion of the Liberal Arts program, students will have an academic platform sufficient to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program. Students will learn about the world through the framework of the mathematician, the scientist, the writer, the humanist, and the social scientist. The broad education provided by the Liberal Arts program will nurture students who can develop, identify, and assimilate a  variety of intellectual and practical skills to solve sophisticated problems across multiple contexts (e.g., written and oral communication, information literacy, quantitative literacy, critical thinking and inquiry, teamwork, self-monitoring of learning). Students will develop ethical reasoning, critical thinking skills, as well as an understanding of diverse cultures and differing points of view. Through collaboration and individual exploration, they will grapple with universal questions and be prepared for citizenship as well as lifelong learning.
