What it's about

A 64 or 65-hour Associate in Arts degree in General Education is available to students who would like to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a degree in education. It is designed to provide students with an opportunity to take the first two years of a four-year program in Education.

Jobs available

College transfer programs, such as the Associate in General Education, are designed to assist your transition towards a Bachelor's degree, not necessarily into a job. Students completing the AGE, but do not transfer, may find work in a variety of settings.
