The Associate in Arts (AA) degree is awarded for successful completion of a program of 60 semester credits in liberal arts and sciences and is designed to constitute the first two years of a Bachelor�s degree. The Associate in Arts degree is a liberal arts degree intended primarily for students who plan to transfer to another college or university to complete a bachelor�s degree. No specific major is listed in conjunction with the degree; however, students may choose to concentrate in a particular field of study in preparation for a planned major or professional emphasis at a four-year college or university. An AA degree must include the entire Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (40 semester credits), which, pursuant to Minnesota statute, must transfer to any institution in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system or the University of Minnesota. Students are to develop an educational plan in consultation with a Saint Paul College Transfer Specialist to assure that degree requirements are fulfilled. Requirements may vary depending upon the major and transfer college. All required courses are availableeither face-to-face or online. The degree may be completed entirely online.
