Associate Degree Programs

For each major, a recommended two-year sequence of courses is provided. Students who follow this plan will complete the major in the traditional time frame; i.e., two years of associate degrees. The curriculum sequence is designed to permit the completion of course prerequisites and to ensure access to courses not available every semester.
