The online Associate in Arts degree program from Northwest-Shoals Community College is designed to prepare students for transfer to another institution to pursue a four-year degree in areas such as art, general liberal arts, music, pre-law, or teacher education. Although the curriculum is based on a general foundation of courses typical for the first two years of a baccalaureate degree program, students are assigned to an advisor on the basis of an intended major or field of interest indicated by the individual student.
This degree program requires 60-64 credits for completion.
