University Transfer Degree

University Transfer Degree Information:
This degree program is designed for students planning to transfer to baccalaureate colleges and universities. Transfer credit varies among
colleges. Students should consult both the catalog of the specific college/university to which they plan to transfer and the signed transfer agreement or the current transfer planning guide posted at to select courses that will meet requirements for both the associate and baccalaureate degree programs.


Program Description:
According to Socrates, “the unexamined life is not worth living.” By studying the humanities, students will have the opportunity to examine
the diverse expressions of human experience. The humanities can be understood as the systematic study of the human artistic/creative
response to the circumstances of existence. Human creativity in all cultures has manifested itself in a variety of forms including, but not
limited to the academic disciplines of: painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, poetry, drama, philosophy, music, dance, and film. Humanities courses approach this subject matter in a manner that encourages the cultivation of diverse cultural and analytical perspectives in
an attempt to carefully reflect upon the wider implications of being human.
