Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degree
Students majoring in English receive a broad general-education background that prepares them for transfer to four-year colleges, where they can continue their studies in rhetoric, writing, and literature, or where they can begin other majors in and outside of the liberal arts. Students who take a BA in English find employment in education, publishing, business, and the arts. In addition, the BA in English is excellent preparation for law school and for graduate school in English or another related field. Finally, some students who earn an AA in English go on to study for a bachelor’s in business, thereby combining excellent communications skills with business acumen.
Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.
The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees in Public Health to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
