Liberal Arts Concentrations
The Liberal Arts program provides the first two years of a traditional liberal arts curriculum. Most CCRI students who enroll in this program plan to transfer to a four year college or university in pursuit of a bachelor’s degree.
The Liberal Arts program offers students the opportunity to acquire a perspective on world affairs, human relationships and language, while developing essential skills in critical reading, organization, effective writing, analysis and research. Students who successfully complete this program and/or a Liberal Arts concentration receive an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree.
Concentrations: Students may complete the degree program as described previously or may select an area of study in which to concentrate. Concentrations require the study of five three-credit courses (15 credit hours) in the selected discipline. Additional required or recommended courses are selected from among the electives offered as part of the Liberal Arts program. These concentrations emphasize course work typically required in the freshman and sophomore years of bachelor’s degree programs.
