Associate in Arts

What is an AA Degree?

The Associate in Arts degree is designed for transfer to college and university baccalaureate programs. You'll take a series of courses in different disciplines (which are often termed the basics ) that will assist you in determining a future major, career path, and/or area of concentration. HCTC offers those basic courses which make transfer to colleges and universities a smooth process while also supporting you to achieve an AA degree.

You should note that certain baccalaureate programs may have specific pre-major requirements. Therefore, you'll need to work closely with HCTC counselors and academic advisors to develop your academic plan and determine best-fit courses.
