The Associate of Arts (AA) degrees are specifically designed for transfer as the equivalent of the first half of the Baccalaureate Degree requirements of most public colleges and Universities.

The study of sociology will prepare students for entrance into various careers. The relevance of sociology for all students is the expansion of human awareness and multiculturalism. In a society and world becoming more complex and interrelated, students increasingly need to be aware of the social and culture environments affecting their lives.
