Transfer Degrees

The English and Communications department is proud to offer the following Associate of Arts (A.A.) in this area of study. As an additional transfer option, AACC has the unique, Transfer Studies degree. Both degrees will prepare you to transfer to a four-year institution. Whichever path you choose, we strongly encourage you to meet with an advisor to structure your AACC studies to meet your specific transfer goals.

Creative Writing, Arts and Science Transfer, A.A.

This two-year program is designed to provide students an opportunity to develop as readers and writers and to develop their talents in writing fiction, poetry, screenwriting, playwriting and nonfiction.

While studying with faculty who are practicing poets and prose writers, creative writing majors explore the resources of their imaginations, sharpen their critical and verbal skills, and develop a professional attitude about their writing.


Transfer Studies, A.A.

The Transfer Studies, A.A. allows you to explore different subjects or concentrate on a specific course plan that will best meet your in-state (and even some out-of-state) transfer goals. This option is particularly good if you are undecided in your ultimate career direction, not sure where you'd like to eventually transfer or just looking to complete general education requirements while "testing the waters" of a particular major. No matter what brings you to Transfer Studies, the result is a well-rounded associate degree preparing you for further studies and successful career.
