Which degree is right for you?

What’s the difference between the Associate of Arts degrees in general studies and liberal arts?

Both A.A. degrees have similar general education requirements.

The liberal arts degree has specific requirements for classes in math, communication, philosophy, literature, and world languages classes; but you still get to choose some your own elective courses, too.

For the general studies degree, you have more latitude in choosing what classes to take, though it is suggested you consult an academic advisor and consider the requirements of the four-year institution to which you may transfer, and your personal goals.

What’s the difference between the general studies degrees (Associate of Science vs. Associate of Arts)?
