Program Details

The College Transfer Associate of Arts curriculum from Nash Community College is designed for students who intend to transfer to a senior college for their baccalaureate degree. The freshman and sophomore level courses introduce the students to areas of study that develop breadth of outlook and contribute to balanced development. This training is complementary to, but different in emphasis from, the specialized training one receives for a job, a profession, or a major in a particular field of study.

The curriculum includes courses in communications, humanities and fine arts, mathematics, science, social sciences, physical education, and elective courses in liberal arts. These courses in the College Transfer Program assist students to develop an understanding and appreciation of the political, social, economic and cultural institutions in our society; to develop the ability for critical and constructive thinking, for problem solving, and ordering of values; to maintain good mental and physical health for self, family, and community, and balanced personal and social adjustment; to use basic mechanical, mathematical, and communication skills to solve everyday problems, understand ideas of others, and express ideas effectively; and to encourage participation in creative activities. Upon successful completion of the degree requirements, students are awarded the Associate in Arts degree. Only letter grades of “C” or higher in all curriculum courses will count towards completion of the College Transfer Diploma and/or Degree.
