About the Transfer Studies, A.A.

Among our degrees for transfer, Anne Arundel awards a distinctive program of study called a Transfer Studies, A.A.   This degree is designed to allow students to choose an interest area or a concentration , while achieving their general education requirements .  Through this program’s electives  students have the opportunity to explore different areas of college coursework or to develop a specific course plan that will best meet their transfer goals.  It also a good choice for students who are not yet sure that they want to transfer immediately.  It allows students to obtain a well-rounded Associates of Arts degree. Students can use this associate’s degree to pursue a career or other personal goal, but still maintain their option to transfer in the future.
