Liberal Arts and Sciences Associate's Degree

The Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences is a two-year undergraduate program that focuses on liberal arts courses and represents completion of the College's General Education curriculum. The Associate in Arts program is designed to allow for the transfer and application of credits earned at Molloy University to apply to the bachelor's degree requirements at most four-year colleges and universities. The program requires 60 credits.

Students are not required to take a COR course for this degree. The available elective credits should be chosen carefully with an academic advisor to best select elective courses that are transferable to another institution or program of study.
