Graduates of the Associate in Arts (A.A.) program usually transfer to senior institutions and major in such areas as business administration, education, and the liberal arts. The degree stresses communications, humanities, and behavioral and social sciences, so it is ideal for the student who wishes to broaden his or her general knowledge. An A.A. degree can lead to careers in such fields as sales, marketing, law, journalism, teaching, public relations, and human resources. Students who are currently undecided about their educational or career goals will find transfer courses that will apply toward their future major or career choices.

To assist students with their career and education goals, within the Associate in Arts the College has established career pathways intended for advising purposes. The career pathways include a limited number of courses specific for the career or discipline in which a student wishes to pursue. Students choosing a career pathway within the A.A. degree will graduate HGTC with the Associate in Arts degree.

Because transfer requirements vary, students should work with their Academic Advisor and the transfer institution to plan a specific program of study. Visit http://www.sctrac.org to view transfer programs at a number of senior institutions.
