2014-15 Catalog

General Course Requirement Classification List for Associate of Applied Science Degrees

These general course requirements are designed to ensure that all students graduating with AAS degrees have demonstrated fundamental written and oral communication skills and have successfully performed at the collegiate level in at least one of the listed discipline areas (humanities, natural science, mathematics or social science). 

The design of AAS degrees, like that of undergraduate certificates, ensures further that students gain some proficiency in essential skills of communication, computation and human relations. In the absence of specific required courses in these areas, the degrees address these topics in the major requirements and measure student performance in those classes.
