Arts & Sciences Department Chair David Raymond discusses how a liberal arts degree easily transfers to a four-year institution and saves students money.
Arts & Sciences
The Arts and Science Department provides the academic courses that support the other major departments of healthcare, trade and technical, and business. New courses are developed by faculty members sitting down and collaborating with their colleagues in the trade and technical field to get a feel for the basic needs of those different disciplines so that they can figure out how their scientific knowledge or mathematical skills the writing skills can be applied to those particular trade areas. The applied mathematics courses that we have teach them mathematical skills that they can apply to specific occupations. For example, we have a course called electrical math and the use of mathematics is taught in a way that it supports all of our electrical programs. It's a way to teach basic computational skills that are applicable in the various trade and technical areas. In virtually all of our programs, you can have a two year degree here and have the option of going directly to work or transferring on to the university and maintaining as many of those credits as possible in the process. We always put our students first and we try to figure out ways that we can give them the best education while they are here. And allow them to take it either to the workplace or on to a four year institution.
