Why Liberal Arts at APSU?

The Liberal Arts associate degree program is designed to serve as a complete two-year educational program, as well as to transfer to a bachelor’s degree program.  It includes many courses that are required for any four-year program of study and an area of electives that may allow a student to enroll in either major specific courses or courses of a personal interest. 

That makes the Liberal Arts program an excellent choice for students who are unsure of their academic career plans.  The program also is ideal for students who are attempting to fulfill core requirements for any four-year degree.  A student pursuing a bachelor degree may apply for the Liberal Arts degree upon completion of the requirements without interrupting the bachelor program.

Liberal Arts advisers are available by appointment or by email throughout the academic year to answer questions and advise students on the appropriateness of the program for their particular career or educational goal.  Once course selections are available for the upcoming term, advisers are available to assist students in choosing classes.
