Program Objective

The objective of the associate in Letters, Arts and Sciences degree is to broaden the student's understanding, interests and skills in order to help them become a more responsible, productive member of the family and community.


Associate of Art in Letters, Arts and Sciences

This major also offers a program with sufficient electives to permit some specialization according to the student's interests or career plans. Letters, Arts, and Sciences is a complete two-year degree major. However, graduates who later seek admission to baccalaureate degree majors may apply baccalaureate credits toward the new degree.

In order to be eligible for entrance to the major, the student must submit a proposal. In consultation with an LAS adviser, the student formulates a proposal designing a program that investigates a theme from the viewpoint of at least three different subject areas. Students may not duplicate existing majors from any academic area.

For the 2LACC degree, a minimum of 60 credits is required.
