Applied Liberal Arts AS
The associate in science degree in applied liberal arts is designed to prepare deaf and hard-of-hearing students to enter and successfully complete a bachelor’s degree in the College of Liberal Arts, which offers majors in advertising and public relations, communication, criminal justice, economics, international and global studies, journalism, museum studies, philosophy, political science, psychology, public policy, and sociology and anthropology.
By the end of the first year, students choose a College of Liberal Arts major they wish to enroll in after completing the AS degree. During the second year, students take five professional courses in their chosen liberal arts major. In addition, as a part of their AS course work, students complete five mathematics and science courses to meet the graduation requirements of their major.
