Program Overview

The Liberal Arts: Arts and Humanities degree is designed for students who wish to have a broad knowledge of liberal arts and sciences plus additional coursework in an area of emphasis. This emphasis allows students to satisfy general education requirements as well as focus on transferable course work. It is ideal for students who plan on transferring to California State University (CSU) or University of California (UC) for a major in education or for a major that Cerro Coso does not offer.

This program emphasizes the study of cultural, literary, humanistic activities, and artistic expression of human beings. Students evaluate and interpret the ways in which people through the ages in different cultures have responded to themselves and the world around them in artistic and cultural creation. Students also learn to value aesthetic understanding and incorporate these concepts when constructing value judgments. This degree is appropriate for students intending to transfer into such majors as Art History, English, Humanities, and Philosophy.
