The Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degree program is designed for students who wish to enter fields related to the arts, humanities, or social sciences. Related areas of emphasis include elementary education, secondary education, business education, physical education, recreation, English, foreign languages, business administration, public administration, geography, history, international studies, law, political science, psychology, counseling, social work, sociology, journalism, speech, and/or theater.

Requirements for specific majors at senior institutions may vary. Therefore, it is the responsibility of students to plan a program of study to meet the requirements of the college to which the student expects to transfer. It is strongly recommended that students consult the college/university to which they plan to transfer to ensure that courses taken at Central Carolina meet the senior institution’s requirements for the desired four-year degree. Informed academic advisors are available to assist students.

The length of time required to complete a University Transfer Program is dependent upon the number of courses in which the student enrolls each semester. See Statewide Articulation Agreement: Technical College Courses Transferable to Public Senior Institutions in the General Information section of this catalog. For more information, go to
