Enroll in an affordable college program, improve your education, choose a career pathway, and then transfer to a four-year college or university. Such a plan is wise and popular, and our Liberal Arts program is the place to put it to action. Students can simultaneously earn a WMCC degree and complete the first two years of a Bachelor’s degree, saving money in the process. Let us help to get you started today.
This Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degree program offers the equivalent of the first two years in a four-year Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science program. In this flexible program, students select courses based on the requirements of the four-year college to which they plan to transfer. Working with an advisor, students design a program of study that best prepares them for transfer, identifying early in the process potential four-year colleges and universities to attend.
Upon completion of the program
WMCC’s Liberal Arts program gives students an academic background sufficient to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program. It also provides a foundation for the acquisition of skills and abilities essential for jobs requiring a broader base of arts and sciences.
Students may start this degree program in the fall, spring, or summer semesters.
Graduates of the program must master five general outcomes designed to prepare them to perform competently and confidently in a rapidly changing world. These outcomes include an ability to:
- Communicate effectively both verbally and non-verbally;
- Explore diverse ideas and emotions, as expressed through the various academic disciplines
- Evaluate events, institutions, historical trends, social systems, and creative works of art
- Perform mathematical operations basic to functioning in present and future disciplines or occupations and to prepare for further education;
- Engage in scientific thought both quantitatively and qualitatively, formulating questions and producing answers to problems related to the human condition and technology.
