The Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) Division offers the Associate in Arts (AA) degree and the certificate in Professional Writing, Introductory University Studies and University Studies. The Division also provides general education and support courses for most other programs at TTC. The AA degree, while emphasizing communication, social sciences and humanities, can provide students with the first two years of baccalaureate course work. The AA program is designed to prepare students for four- year (baccalaureate) majors in fields such as:
- Business Administration
- Foreign Language
- Political Science
- Other Humanities, Fine Arts and Social Sciences
AA students should consult with their academic advisors to discuss program requirements. Academic advisors are assigned through the college orientation process conducted in the Orientation centers on each campus. Your AA advisor will work closely with you to pick courses that not only fulfill curriculum requirements for the AA degree, but also, in most cases, fulfill the general education requirements at a four-year institution if you plan to transfer.
The certificate in Professional Writing provides students with fundamental writing skills for use in a variety of disciplines including business writing, creative writing, journalism, technical writing and writing for electronic media.
