The Associate of Arts & Science Degree
The University of Wisconsin Colleges offers the Associate of Arts and Science degree, which provides a two-year, general education liberal arts-based academic program with training in the fine arts and humanities, mathematical and natural sciences, and social sciences. The degree can be used for transfer to a four-year university, as a basis for qualifying for employment, or to continue in life-long learning.
The Associate of Arts and Science degree is a foundation for many majors in the UW System and is generally accepted by other UW System institutions as fulfilling the university-wide, college and school general education breadth requirements.
In addition to the Associate of Arts and Science Degree, students may earn the Associate of Arts and Science degree with Emphasis.
