Young, Cynthia

The Associate in General Education (AGE) curriculum is designed for individuals wishing to broaden their education, with emphasis on personal interest, growth, and development. The two-year General Education program provides students opportunities to study English, literature, fine arts, philosophy, social science, science, and mathematics at the college level. Many of the courses are equivalent to college transfer courses; however, the program is not principally designed for college transfer. The A.G.E. - General Science option is specifically designed for students who are attempting to enter a competitive health or science program and who need courses to improve their chances of admission or who have exited such a program and wish to complete an associate degree. Completion of this program does not guarantee admission to any other academic program.
