Associate in Arts

Program Details

The Associate of Arts offered by Robeson Community College is an online degree program intended for individuals who wish to gain some education without committing to the financial and time restraints of a bachelor’s program. This degree is part of the Robeson Community College Transfer program, which is designed to introduce students to the collegiate environment and to assist students in developing the communication, critical thinking, and analytical skills necessary to succeed in college.

The AA is comprised of 65 credit hours and can be completed in two years. The point of this program is for students to either transfer to a Bachelor’s degree program or to advance their career goals by gaining a recognizable degree.

This program involves 44 credit hours of General Education courses, which generally include English, Computer Science, History, Government, Arts, Science, and Math. These classes are the foundation upon which a liberal arts education is based. They afford students the basic skills and knowledge needed to think critically and broadly.

The rest of the required credit hours should be focused on major requirements depending on what focus the student chooses. This particular Associate of Arts can focus either in Humanities or Fine Arts. The second year is mainly focused on elective courses in a specific subject matter.
