General Education Courses for Associate of Applied Science Degrees

The common goal of all Associate of Applied Science degrees and occupational certificate programs is to prepare students for employment in specific occupations. The programs for the degrees consist of major courses as well as related general education courses. While many of these courses may transfer to a four-year College or university, the programs themselves do not have transferability as their primary goal. Students are encouraged to discuss career goals and educational objectives with an Advisor prior to enrolling in these programs. Courses numbered below 100 cannot be used to satisfy elective requirements for A.A.S. degrees.

The Associate of Applied Science degrees require that a minimum number of courses must be completed from the approved general education list. The Associate of Arts, the Associate of Science and Associate of General Studies degree requirements listed previously already contain the general education options for those degrees.

NOTE: Classes denoted with an * are currently not offered at Arapahoe Community College.

Definition of General Education

General education for the A.G.S. and A.A.S. degrees is defined by State Board Policy (BP 9-40). General education is "general" in several clearly identifiable ways: it is not directly related to a student’s formal technical, vocational or professional preparation; it is a part of every student’s course of study, regardless of his or her area of emphasis; and is intended to impart common knowledge, intellectual concepts and attitudes which every educated person should possess.
