Communications, Arts and Humanities Division

The Liberal Arts Transfer Program includes the General Education core and additional required courses that give students the basis of a liberal education. The program teaches students how to understand deeply and communicate clearly in ways appropriate for a good citizen and scholar.  To that end, students will study communication, arts, literature, language, math, and social and natural sciences. The range of courses allows students to explore disciplines and interdisciplinary thinking necessary for upper-level courses upon transfer. 

Program Competencies

Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to:

  • Demonstrate ways diverse disciplines reason, write, and reflect.
  • Evaluate the impact of the arts and sciences on society.
  • Communicate clearly and effectively through a variety of modalities.
  • Show breadth of knowledge across the liberal arts.
  • Identify the correlation between the liberal arts education and the potential for socially responsible choices.
  • Recognize the value of cultural diversity and the arts.

Required Program of Study


Important Note:  Liberal Arts students following the 2015-16 or later Student Catalogue should save all course work, particularly graded writings and projects, in their Canvas e-portfolio for use in HUM 291 Liberal Arts Capstone Experience for which they will register after completing at least 45 program credits.

Major Requirements (7 Credit Hours)


Suggested Electives (6 Credit Hours)


Courses selected as electives will depend upon the institution to which you will transfer. It is essential that you consult with a Faculty Advisor for assistance in selecting elective courses. However, it is the responsibility of students to meet with an admissions representative from the four-year institution to determine its transfer policies.
