Program Overview

Miami University offers students the opportunity to earn an Associate of Arts degree by attending classes on Saturdays.  The flexible program allows busy students to gain the foundational education necessary for personal and professional growth.  Students can utilize the hybrid learning format, of both online and on campus courses, to maintain current careers or family obligations.  The Associate of Arts program will introduce students to the required general education curriculum to perform as contributing assets in a variety of business and artistic settings.  

The Saturday Select program offers students the same level of education, taught by qualified Miami University instructors that can be attended every Saturday morning or afternoon. Each course lasts about 8 weeks and can be completed in roughly 2 years, or as long as the student needs to fulfill obligations while also earning the degree.   

The goal of the Associate of Arts study is to produce a virtuous, knowledgeable, and articulate person.  The Saturday Select program is designed for students who test as ‘college ready’ and have the maturity and organizational skills for such a flexible degree program.  Students will attend on campus courses at either the Hamilton or Middletown locations, and the online courses can be completed individually.  The AA degree program is comprised of courses delving into the fine arts, the social sciences, humanities, literature, history, communications, and political science to name a few.  Graduates will be able to apply the learned fundamentals from the AA degree program to a wide variety of respected career opportunities as well as personal endeavors as entrepreneurs.
