An Arts and Sciences Area of Study

Application Code 287

For curriculum information, contact the Arts and Humanities Division–Room HVPA-200–443-518-1480.

This curriculum is designed for those students who want to use an interdisciplinary approach in the pursuit of knowledge.  Asian Studies is designed to transfer to a four-year school where students would further their studies in a similar concentration. The curriculum gives the student flexibility to pursue a major interest and, at the same time, to fulfill the lower-division general education requirements for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program. Students should seek guidance from advisors and the institution to which they intend to transfer to determine appropriate coursework for specific transfer programs.

General Education Core

Students enrolled in transfer patterns must take a minimum of 30 credits in General Education. Each student’s total of general education and required courses must equal at least 60 semester hours of credit.
