Program Description

The Associate in Arts, or Liberal Arts is designed for students planning to enter a baccalaureate college upon completion at Lake Region State College to complete their undergraduate studies. Studies consist primarily of diverse, introductory level courses in academic and professional areas with an emphasis in arts and social science.

The Associate in Arts (AA) degree require study in five core areas: communication skills; arts and humanities; social sciences; mathematics, science and computer science; and physical education. These core areas of general education study were purposely selected to encourage you to investigate a variety of academic disciplines. In addition to the 39-credit core requirements, you must select a minimum of 21 credits of elective coursework. A total of 60 credit hours or more is required to complete the AA degree.

Knowledgeable advisors help you choose electives which meet transfer requirements and build strong foundations for upper division coursework.

"Transfer Friendly"

Universities throughout the country are "transfer friendly". It is not uncommon for the AA and AS degrees to be accepted as a block of study in place of specific first and second year course requirements. All first and second year (100 and 200 level) education courses have common names and numbers throughout the North Dakota University System, eliminating the chance of confusion about course equivalence.

Course Planning

Students with the expectation of entering a baccalaureate college should consult the catalog of the degree-granting college and should examine the prerequisites in the fields in which they are interested. Students should confer with their advisor and plan their entire community college courses early in their college career. Students working toward an Associate in Arts degree or Associate in Science degree who do not intend to transfer their credits to another college may select electives from any department provided they meet Lake Region State College requirements.

The Lake Region State College Catalog contains curriculum which attempt to meet the requirements of many different baccalaureate colleges. The curricula are aids in planning your program. In many instances, substitutions or changes may be made, depending upon the needs and background of the student and the specific requirements of the baccalaureate college to which the student intends to transfer. Check with Student Services for specific Articulation Agreements with the four-year college.

General Education Requirement Transfer Agreement (GERTA)

The North Dakota University System (NDUS) General Education Requirement Transfer Agreement (GERTA) was developed to assist students who transfer within NDUS. This agreement states that students who complete their general education coursework at any NDUS institution will be deemed to have completed their general education requirements at any other NDUS institution.

The GERTAs are published in a document called the GERTA Gold and Silver Guide. Students who plan to transfer within the NDUS are encouraged to reference this guide, which can be found on the NDUS website at www.ndus.edu.

Unknown-cray-pas.jpgCray-Pas Drawings

Cray-Pas, or oil crayon, is a stick form of a painting medium. Because they are easy to carry and handle, they are used in sketching a painting before the actual painting of oils. In our painting class, we use them as an oil painting medium, blending and layering the colors as paint. Finger cots, Q-tips and Turpenoid are used to blend the crayon strokes like paint.
