University transfer courses can be taken as stand-alone credits. Students do not have to declare their intention of completing the Associate of Arts degree to register in courses. Courses are open to any student who meets the general and specific requirements for each course.
However, students must meet the Associate of Arts program admissions requirements before courses can be used to satisfy the Associate of Arts degree.
Note: Course lists, such as below, can never be exhaustive. New courses will be developed to meet the needs of the program and react to ongoing changes in higher education. Please speak to Advising or the Department for support in selecting courses.
For detailed course descriptions, consult the course outlines available on the main VCC website.
