Program Details

Bucks County Community College offers an Associates in Liberal Arts as part of a general program for students who are interested in examining a variety of disciplines in the humanities and social science, but have not chosen a specific discipline. Students will work on developing their foundational knowledge in addition to communication skills, creative thinking and critical thinking capacities. The program is intended to provide students with a basis for future studies by allowing them to choose courses which fit their interests in order to better understand their future goals.

Students will take part in a curriculum which will develop their general education and knowledge in a variety of fields for application in future studies. Those classes include effective speaking, English composition, basic problems in philosophy, the arts, college level mathematics and sciences, cultural perspectives, foreign languages, the humanities, integration of knowledge, literature, personal health, social and behavioral sciences, and social perspectives.

Upon completion, students will have demonstrated the necessary educational qualifications for future studies.  These qualifications include but are not limited to the intention to transfer to four-year colleges in the liberal arts, the understanding of liberal arts areas prior to a commitment to a specific major, demonstrating an understanding necessary for pre-major work in law, medicine, journalism, business, or other career field, and maximize acceptance of general education courses by transfer colleges.
