Program Overview

Lenoir Community College offers students the opportunity to earn an Associate in Arts degree. An Associate of Arts degree is classified as Liberal Arts study and serves as the foundation for students to enter into multiple careers, or as the needed credits to transfer to another higher education institute. Students may use the Associate of Arts degree to better understand a broad spectrum of curriculums.

The goal of the Associate of Arts degree is to produce a virtuous, knowledgeable, and articulate person capable of communicating essential concepts to others in the professional environment. The AA curriculum is comprised of Humanities/Fine Arts, Social/Behavioral Sciences, Natural Sciences/Mathematics and Physical Education. The core courses are designed to expand a student's knowledge and skills, while also offering the foundational degree to build on future careers and personal endeavors.

Students wishing to pursue higher educations at the bachelor level may use the Associate of Arts degree, while maintaining a 2.0 GPA, to transfer to most North Carolina state universities. Acceptance to the state universities is conditional and not guaranteed; it is the student’s prerogative to satisfy Lenoir Community College’s requirements as well as the requirements for the school they wish to transfer to. Students must complete the required 65 credit hours, to the satisfactory level of administrators.

Upon successful completion of the Associate degree program, students should be awarded the degree as the formal academic credential needed for immediate entry into the professional environment.
