Graduates of the Arts and Sciences program at Carroll Community College are well positioned to transfer to four-year colleges and universities in Maryland as well as other states. The courses in the program are transfer oriented and form the basis of a solid foundation in the liberal arts. By using the online ARTSYS program, students can plan a course of study that will transfer seamlessly to a baccalaureate degree-granting institution.

Because the Arts and Sciences program is designed for transfer students, it provides preparation for occupations requiring a broad background. Graduates can pursue careers in art, computers, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, law, sciences, the humanities and social sciences as well as other fields. Moreover, the degree provides a foundation that allows students to change career direction later.

The Arts and Sciences degree requires 31 credits in highly transferable general education courses and 29 credits of electives, which should be selected to satisfy the student’s bachelor’s degree requirements. Using the resources in the Advising and Transfer Center, students can customize a degree to meet personal transfer requirements. For maximum credit transferability, students should choose a major and transfer institution before 30 credits are earned. In addition to transferability and flexibility, a Carroll Community College Arts and Sciences degree provides an education that places great emphasis on helping students become independent learners, capable of exploring many subjects.

Beginning Fall 2015, students may choose to complete this program in a fully online format. Speak with an advisor to learn more and determine if online learning is appropriate.
