Liberal Arts Pathway

The Liberal Arts Pathway is designed for students wishing to earn general education credits to apply toward an associate of arts or bachelor’s degree in one of the Liberal Arts disciplines—Communication, English, Liberal Arts, Philosophy, Psychology, or Sociology. Students may choose to earn an associate’s degree at North Central State and/or transfer the credits toward a bachelor’s degree at any public Ohio college or university under the Ohio Transfer Module. Courses in this pathway may also apply to other transfer degrees including Business, Education, and Social Work. Courses will also transfer individually regardless of the student’s major. This is just a sample. There are numerous courses that could apply toward this pathway, and with noted prerequisite exceptions they do not have to be taken in this order. For more information on these programs, go to the degree webpages at http://www.ncstatecollege.edu/cms/degrees/transfer.
