Program of Study

An Associate of Arts (AA) degree is a two-year program that provides a general liberal arts education. An AA degree helps students gain useful career skills and is also designed to serve as a stepping stone into a bachelor degree program at a four-year college or university.

To make an informed selection of Ohio Transfer 36 (OT36) courses, Terra State advises the transfer-intending student to consult the receiving institution to ensure maximum transferability and application of credits.
