Associate in Arts (AA) / Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC)

The Associate in Arts (A.A.) is designed to constitute the first two years of a liberal arts bachelor degree program. An A.A. degree includes the entire 40 credit Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) as the general education requirement. Students may also choose to concentrate in a particular field of study in preparation for a planned major or professional emphasis at a four-year-college by following the pre-major requirements of the desired transfer institution.
