Program Overview

Rappahannock Community College’s Associate of Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree is essentially what every student is seeking at a community college or similar two-year college program. It is a degree which gives them the educational foundations that four-year institutions seek in their freshman and sophomore students. Through the Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree, students at Rappahannock Community College are prepared to do exactly that, transfer to another institution and begin their educational study in a field of their choice. The program adequately prepares students seeking a major in Liberal Arts, Science, Social or Behavioral Sciences, Teacher Prep/Education, among most others. 

In preparation for a four-year degree, students should also investigate the educational and transfer requirements at the school they wish to enter, in order to make sure that transfer credits are accepted, and students take the classes required for entrance into the program. 

The program is a general studies program designed for maximum exposure to a wide range of topics, including history, mathematics, natural science, social sciences, leadership skills, college composition, the humanities, computer application, public speaking, and health. On top of the required core curriculum, students are expected to choose a series of elective study classes to complete the requirements for attaining a transfer degree. 

Students should understand that most professions are glad to see an Associate Degree in their applicants, however, the Associate Degree shows proficiency in general education, not advanced education in the topic that the student is seeking. Any student seeking a professional career in any subject should strongly consider a four year education from a respected institution.
