This option is primarily designed to prepare students to transfer into the junior year of a baccalaureate degree program in history. In addition, students seeking admission into political science or pre-law programs would receive a solid academic foundation upon which to build a successful major.
Upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to:
■ Demonstrate general knowledge of historical inquiry and research.
■ Describe the interconnection between economics, politics, society and culture and analyze the effects of these influences on historic development.
■ Provide examples of the impact of individual and collective action upon historic development.
■ Examine the impact of perspective on the interpretation of historic events.
■ Communicate clearly in both oral and written form.
■ Demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
The Liberal Arts AA at SCCC is designed for students who wish to transfer into 4-year Bachelor of Ars programs. In September 2008, the governor and state legislature created a law that established a statewide transfer agreement for students transferring with a degree from a New Jersey community college to a New Jersey public four-year college or university. Students can now seamlessly transfer their academic credits from a completed community college Associate of Arts (A.A.) to a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or from a completed Associate of Science (A.S.) to a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree program at New Jersey’s public four-year colleges and universities. Our Counseling & Advising Center can help you with transfer questions. More information on this opportunity is available at njtransfer.org.
