Core Requirements for the Associate of Arts and Associate of Science
These programs are designed primarily for students who desire to continue their education at a four-year college/university. At Lone Star College, the associate of arts degree and the associate of science degree are generalized degrees. Each degree will not list a specific major but will be called associate of arts or associate of science.
While certain courses are recommended, the requirements are essentially the basic first year and second year offerings appropriate for the first two years of many baccalaureate degree programs. Students who successfully complete the degree requirements of the programs of study will be eligible to receive the associate of arts degree or the associate of science degree from Lone Star College.
A course cannot count toward more than one requirement of the degree with the exception of the multicultural requirement.
