Associate of Arts - AA

The liberal arts and sciences department created the Associate of Arts degree for busy, adult learners. A purposeful blend of hybrid and fully online core courses are the foundation of this degree. Students will complete forty credits in a broad range of liberal arts and sciences coursework that support living a meaningful life, problem-solving, communication and ethical leadership. Additionally, students may choose to complete twenty credits in such courses as business, psychology, social work, technology, and liberal arts, which will prepare students for baccalaureate programs and careers in these areas. Since our A.A. curriculum articulates the connection between our associate and adult baccalaureate programs, students will have a clear pathway to remain at St. Kate’s for their educational journey. 

The liberal arts and science courses offered for associate degree students (and for some bachelor's degree-seeking students in the College for Adults) are listed under the Courses tab.

This major is offered in the College for Adults only.
