Associate in Arts

What is an AA Degree?

The Associate in Arts (AA) degree is awarded when you complete a minimum of 60 credit hours of classes, including the specified general education requirements for the degree, with a grade-point average of at least 2.0. Coursework focuses on classes in the humanities, social sciences, and English. This degree readily transfers to a four-year institution: working with advisors from both Southeast and your desired university will ensure that each course you take will move you towards your desired bachelor's degree.

Transfer Opportunities

The classes prepare Southeast graduates for further education. For all students, this involves some understanding of their own abilities, interests, and needs. The courses also help students develop their own values, pursue goals, and contribute to making society better. In addition, Southeast graduates who eventually earn a four-year degree do as well in the classroom as students who start at four-year colleges.

Under Kentucky law, students who complete either degree will have their course work accepted at any state, public four-year school.
