What is the Associate of Arts degree?

The Associate of Arts (AA) Degree at Marion Technical College is designed to be a cost effective option for someone who is ultimately seeking a four-year degree.  The AA degree includes the core curriculum that most bachelor of arts programs require.
One way to think of this excellent academic option is to look at the AA degree as an “Academic Buffet”. When building your AA schedule, you will see the numerous course options you have.  If undecided about what career field to pursue, take some General Education courses and see what sparks your interest. All the while, you are working towards an Associate of Arts degree!

The Ohio Board of Regents has guaranteed that much, if not all, of the AA degree will transfer to all of Ohio’s public colleges and universities. The purposes of this associate degree are to: (1) provide students with the opportunity to affordably complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree; (2) enable students to transfer (often as a junior) to colleges and universities and earn a bachelor’s degree; (3) demonstrate to employers that a student successfully completed a degree program and possesses a well-rounded education.

What Can I Do With This Degree?

The AA degree is a two-year liberal arts degree comprised of courses that emphasize English, social sciences, arts and humanities. It also offers components of mathematics and natural sciences.  Graduates of this program will have the general education course work completed and be ready to pursue a bachelor’s degree at most four-year colleges and universities. In addition, we are now hearing that many employers are requiring an Associate degree (of any kind) to be hired or if current employees want to be considered for promotions.  The AA fits perfectly.

Flexible Option!

The possibilities of this AA degree are endless.  Once you transfer your credits, you can choose to complete a bachelor’s degree in almost any field of study.  .
There are numerous courses within the AA degree that can be completed online, which will maximize your flexibility. Thus, you can fit many classes into your busy schedule!  To see a list of courses that are available online and will apply towards the AA or AS degree, go to www.mtc.edu/transfer and click   “online courses”   on the right.
