Graduates of the Arts and Sciences program at Carroll Community College are well positioned to transfer to four-year colleges and universities in Maryland as well as other states. The program allows students to select transfer oriented courses based on a receiving institutions requirements and form the basis of a solid foundation in the liberal arts. Because the Arts and Sciences program is designed for transfer, it provides framework for preparation for occupations requiring a broad background. Graduates can pursue careers in art, computers, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, law, sciences, the humanities and social sciences as well as other fields. Moreover, the degree provides a foundation that allows students to change career direction later.

The Arts and Sciences degree requires 34 credits in highly transferable general education courses and 26 credits of electives, which should be selected to satisfy the freshman and sophomore bachelor’s degree requirements.
