Program Overview

Manchester Community College has a program available for an Associate’s degree in Liberal Arts. There are many different areas within Liberal Arts: English, Social Science, Foreign Language, Humanities, Fine Arts, Mathematics and Science. Each of these subjects has more focused areas of study from which students can choose a specific discipline.

All students completing this degree will take the same core requirements, plus choose between two or three classes to fulfill other credit requirements. In addition to these core classes, students must choose 12 credits of any level liberal arts and science electives, plus 9 credits of 200 level liberal arts and science electives. Altogether, the total time of this degree comes to 65-67 credit hours.

Liberal Arts advisors are available to assist students with their electives and class schedules. MCC strongly advises students to work closely with their advisors to come up with a class schedule that fits their academic needs. Some students don’t want to concentrate on one discipline, but those who do should plan to take electives in this chosen area of study.

This program covers a period of two years. Therefore, the primary goal of this Liberal Arts degree program is giving a base education so students can transfer to a 4-year college or university. Students who complete this program have successfully transferred to institutions such as Emerson College, Boston University, Granite State College and Clark University, among many others.

MCC also aims to give students a solid base in human relationship skills, communication skills, critical thinking, global perspectives, quantitative reasoning, scientific processes, technical skills and study skills.
