This transfer option** of the Arts and Sciences Associate of Arts degree provides students with an understanding of the roles women have played in cultures throughout history and culminates in a critical analysis of women’s issues and how they have evolved into current cultural practices, expectations, and concerns. Students examine the significant sociological and historical influences women have had and continue to make in literature, philosophy, the arts, communication, and other areas. Students in this degree program can apply these courses of study to transfer programs in Humanities, Cultural Studies, History, Literature, and other curricula with a strong focus on women’s issues. This degree offers students entering into entrepreneurship, pre-law, healthcare, social sciences, and other areas, a strong foundation to understand the roles of women in the American and global environments, inside and outside of the home and in political/social arenas.

The maximum number of credits accepted in transfer from other institutions to this program is 45.
