Associate of Arts, Liberal Arts, emphasis Social Sciences

The associate of arts degree (AA) works in two ways: 1) it can function as a terminal degree; 2) it can function as a pathway into a baccalaureate degree in the humanities. The degree program meets the requirements of the Colorado Statewide General Education Core. A student who is granted this degree can transfer to any institution in Colorado and graduate in a baccalaureate degree program by taking no more than 60 hours from that institution. The same applies for students who decide to move from the AA program into any CMU BA program.

The Social Science emphasis provides students with the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of the various disciplines which traditionally constitute the Social Sciences: History, Political Science, Sociology, Psychology and Geography. The Social Science program provides an excellent and broad preparation for many different career goals including social science education, graduate school in several disciplines, law and public service.
