Liberal Arts & Sciences Pathways


The Chesapeake College Liberal Arts & Sciences A.A. Degree program provides students with the transfer requirements for liberal arts and sciences majors at four-year institutions.  Students should acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major department at the college or university to which transfer is contemplated and consult with an academic advisor in planning an appropriate program.  The College’s Transfer Advisor can provide additional information regarding the transfer requirements of institutions within the University of Maryland System.

The Pathways included here provide examples of recommended program and free electives that will complement the Liberal Arts & Sciences Degree.
