Develop the core academic skills needed to thrive in college and in the global workplace.
The Arts and Sciences Division develops the core academic competencies necessary for student success in the college and in the global workplace. Successful completion of the general education core ensures that students acquire a breadth of knowledge across the Arts and Sciences disciplines. These disciplines consist of Art, English, Literature, Humanities, Mathematics, and the Social Sciences. Also included in the division of Arts and Sciences are First-Year Experience, Learning Support, and the Academic Success Center.
The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS) allows customization of the program of study based on each student’s academic and professional goals. The AIS requires completion of 61 semester credit hours (21 hours of general education requirements and 40 hours distributed among one or more areas of emphasis). Areas of concentration include education, public safety, business and computer/information technology, industrial/engineering technology, and health sciences. The program curriculum may be strategically selected to build upon the student’s goals and objectives.
