Liberal Arts

The Liberal Arts area of study is designed for students planning to transfer to a senior college or university for completion of a baccalaureate degree. This course sequence intends to provide a strong, general foundation in the humanities. It provides breadth in a variety of disciplines rather than aiming at depth in any one. This area of study is especially appropriate for students who have as their educational goals: (1) transferring to a liberal arts college, (2) undecided plans for a major in transferring to any senior college or university, (3) a desire to understand more thoroughly the underlying principles of individual and social behavior in the environment.
