Program Details

An online Associate of Arts degree is available from Yavapai College for students seeking to continue their education at a four-year college or university. The 60 credit hour program satisfies the Arizona General Education Curriculum-Arts requirements and provides students the necessary core coursework to enter an accepting higher education institution to earn a bachelors degree. The introductory associate program enables students to earn a valuable education through an innovative online environment to maintain current careers and obligations while attending sessions.

The Arizona General Education Curriculum-Arts, in addition to the student’s choice of electives, is designed to lay the educational foundation for students to gain a solid understanding of critical subject matter for personal or professional interests. The 60 credit hours are divided as 35 credits in the Arizona General Education Curriculum-Arts and the remaining credit hours may be delegated to individual studies as chosen by the student for application in current careers or future aspirations. The Arizona General Education Curriculum (both the arts and business concentrations) incorporate essential topics of study in Intensive Writing/Critical Inquiry (IWR), Ethnic/Race/Gender (ERG) awareness, and Global/International and Historical (GIH) awareness areas.

The core curriculum consists of the necessary subjects to become well-rounded graduates, who are able to contribute to an academic society. The core general education courses introduce students to literature, writing, communication, critical thinking, mathematics, history, the natural and social sciences and logical reasoning. Graduates should be able to use the formal designation for immediate entry into the competitive job market, or for continuing their educational pursuits at an Arizona college or University, or any other transfer accepting institution.
