General Arts and Sciences, AA - 60 Credits

Dyson College has an Associate in Arts degree program of 60 credits in general arts and sciences that provides students with a college degree option. This program is appealing to students who do not choose to commit to the greater time requirements of a bachelor’s degree program and are interested in pursuing a course of study designed according to personal interests and/or career goals.

Note: Because an associate degree does provide a platform from which to launch further study, students interested in transferring academic credits to a bachelor’s degree program should choose courses in consultation with a faculty advisor or Dyson Dean's Office advisor.
