Liberal arts is more than just an education in general knowledge. At ACC, you’ll explore various branches of knowledge: literature, language, philosophy, and art; psychology and social sciences; and government and economics. In this interdisciplinary area of study, you’ll learn to think critically and write effectively. With an associate degree, you’ll have a solid foundation for transferring to a four-year university.
