Bachelor of Science (BS) This degree is designed to prepare students for work related to their degree area of study. Completion of this degree will also prepare students for graduate programs at university level institutions.
Associate of Arts Degree (AA) This degree (which allows you to choose an area of concentration) will transfer toward a four-year (bachelor’s) degree. In addition, if you complete any core curriculum course, you receive full credit for that course upon transfer to another USG institution within the same major or concentration. This transferability is guaranteed by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia.
