Our associate in arts degree in general arts gives you a great introduction to a general collegiate education. You can take a wide variety of courses from nearly every area of interest.

Many of this program’s required courses are also University Core Curriculum required courses. It's a good option if later you decide to pursue a bachelor’s degree because many of your credits will apply toward fulfilling the requirements of a bachelor’s degree.

Method of Delivery

You will earn your degree entirely through our online classes. Our courses are asynchronous—meaning you do not have to log in to class on particular times or days of the week. Instead, you work at the times most convenient to you.
