Black River Technical College offers the Associate of Arts (AA) degree for those students wishing to complete the first two years of a baccalaureate program. This two-year degree plan is flexible enough to provide students wishing to major in many academic areas with the opportunity to complete the general education requirements needed for most degrees and, also, to take any specialized course work in their major. The emphasis is such that the student may meet the lower division requirements in general education courses offered at most four-year institutions. Students planning to transfer should follow carefully the curriculum advised by the senior institution to which they will transfer.
The Associate of Arts degree requires 60/61 credit hours as follows:
35 Hours of General Education Core Courses
8/9 Hours of Institutional Requirements
17 Hours of Directed Electives
*The 17 hours of electives must be college transfer courses and approved by the student’s advisor.
