An AA degree in philosophy will give students an introduction to the major questions in philosophy and a foundation in the history of philosophical thought, including metaphysics and epistemology, ethics and logic. For this program of study a student will complete the core courses required for an AA degree including three 2000 level philosophy classes. Those students wishing to stay for a baccalaureate degree should note that these basic philosophy classes also serve as prerequisites for upper level philosophy classes in our American studies program, including, but not limited to, American Philosophy and Environmental Ethics.
The USG core curriculum was developed with the goals of assuring institutional accountability for learning, incorporating learning requirements in global perspectives and critical thinking, allowing institutions some flexibility in tailoring courses to their institutional mission, while ensuring that core curriculum courses completed at one USG institution or through eCore, the USG’s designated online core curriculum, are fully transferable to another USG institution. All core curriculum requirements must be completed as part of the associate of arts, associate of science, bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degree programs. Each institution’s core curriculum shall consist of 42 semester credit hours with the minimum number of credit hours in each area shown below. (BOR Policy Manual, 3.3.1 Core Curriculum)
