Transfer to a Baccalaureate program.
The American Studies option is one focused way to complete the Liberal Arts degree at GCC. By taking courses listed in this specific option, students complete courses that will help develop 100 and 200 course level knowledge and skills in a particular field. Students are advised to work closely with their GCC advisor to select the specific courses that will help meet their specific career or transfer goals. (Note: Students who complete this option will graduate with a diploma that reads "Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts.")
Please note that transfer to many four year colleges and universities will require the completion of four semesters of World Languages. Four sequential semesters of World Language classes from GCC will fulfill any Umass-Amherst language requirement.
