Are you planning to pursue a bachelor’s degree?
Save on tuition costs by completing your first two years at FTCC through one of several transferable associate degrees.
The Arts & Humanities division offers two degrees:
Associate in Arts (AA)
Associate in Fine Arts (AFA)
Either of these degrees will equip you with the core skills and knowledge you will need as you continue your education at a four-year institution.
How can this help me?
Our courses are equivalent to the courses taught in the first two years at a four-year college or university.
We offer courses in a number of disciplines including history, foreign languages, sociology, psychology, communication, fine arts, and many more.
Our degree options provide a solid foundation for students pursuing a four-year degree in a variety of areas, including liberal arts, business, education, social sciences, nursing, and other professional programs that require a strong liberal arts background.
Our Associate in Arts (AA) program falls under the North Carolina Comprehensive Articulation Agreement (CAA)
Under this agreement students completing Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Engineering (A.E.) and Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees at community colleges, with grades of “C” or better, are able to transfer all 64 credits to a four-year institution. In fact, the CAA assures admission to one of the 16 UNC institutions.
Associate in Arts
The College Transfer program is designed for students who intend to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree. Students in this program are responsible for examining the requirements of the four-year college or university to which they plan to transfer for completion of their degree. Counselors and advisors are available to assist students in planning their program.
The course work in the program includes humanities, fine arts, social and behavioral sciences, mathematics, physical education, English, communications and the sciences. The Associate in Arts program concentrates heavily on the humanities and social sciences and is recommended for those who plan to continue in a Bachelor of Arts degree program.
