Liberal Arts

ASSOCIATE’S DEGREE

The Liberal Arts Degree Program at Five Towns College in Long Island, New York, leads to an Associate in Arts Degree (A.A.) and provides an opportunity to explore selected areas in the humanities, the arts and the social and behavioral sciences.

Acquainting you with the broad cultural, social and scientific aspects of the world and stimulating you to think, analyze and communicate are the primary goals of a liberal education. A liberal arts education is also basic to all pursuits in the arts, sciences and professions.

The Liberal Arts Program provides a general education in the traditional areas of knowledge, regardless of your career choice. You also have the opportunity for additional study in a particular discipline in selected fields to explore its methods, acquire its tools and gain a mastery of its body of knowledge.
