"I am committed to education as a process that helps us become engaged, informed, socially active citizens"
This option is primarily designed to prepare students to transfer into the junior year of a baccalaureate degree program in psychology. In addition, students seeking admission into pre-law or public administration programs would receive a solid academic foundation on which to build.
Upon completion of this program, graduates will be able to:
■ Demonstrate problem-solving skills in the study of social science processes.
■ Apply classroom knowledge to real-world situations.
■ Demonstrate an understanding of social science issues on local, national, and global levels.
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.
