The Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) interdisciplinary degrees are the foundations of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. With careful planning, an AA or AS can fulfill the freshman and sophomore requirements for the BA or BS.
Students who plan to transfer to a university after completing an AA or AS should meet with one of VC’s academic advisors to create an AA or AS customized to fit the requirements of the university to which they want to transfer.
Although intended for transfer, these multidisciplinary degrees provide valuable marketable skills such as communication, critical thinking, personal and social responsibility, and teamwork. Students must meet with an academic advisor before completing a cumulative total of 30 or more semester credit hours and, in consultation with an academic advisor, complete a degree plan to determine the best route to meeting your career or transfer goals.
