General Arts and Sciences, AA

Campus: NYC, Westchester


Dyson College has an Associate in Arts degree program of 60 credits in general arts and sciences that provides students with a college degree option. This program - available in Distance or Standard Delivery - is appealing to students who do not choose to commit to the greater time requirements of a bachelor’s degree program and are interested in pursuing a course of study designed according to personal interests and/or career goals. 

Note: Because an associate degree does provide a platform from which to launch further study, students interested in tranferring academic credits to a bachelor's degree program should choose courses in consultation with a faculty advisor or Dyson College Dean's Office advisor.
