Program Overview

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.

    School Overview

    Robeson Community College, a member of the North Carolina Community College System, is a public, two-year institution of higher education, located in the city of Lumberton, North Carolina. In 1965, Barker Ten-Mile Elementary School provided space for a technical institute that enrolled its first twenty students. As the institute continued to expand its vocational and technical programs, it transitioned into Robeson Technical Institute and founded a campus in Lumberton. It later adopted its current title, Robeson Community College. Today the college serves the surrounding community, offering vocational and technical programs, in addition to supporting college transfer degrees and hosting continuing education programs.

    RCC awards associate's degrees, in addition to diploma and certificate programs. Some of the degrees that lead to university transfer are available in fully online formats.
