Liberal Arts and Sciences

The Liberal Arts and Sciences Associate in Arts Degree Program is designed especially for students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a major in such fields as English, science, mathematics, history, philosophy, languages, geography, political science, journalism, or social science. The program provides a comprehensive two-year undergraduate foundation that is tailored to meet the requirements of the University of Connecticut (UConn), Connecticut State Universities (CSU), and others.

A unique feature of Capital’s Liberal Arts and Sciences degree program is the required capstone course (IDS 250), which brings together a team of teachers from a variety of disciplines to lead students in an investigation of a provocative topic.

Students selecting Liberal Arts and Sciences as a major and have 30 or fewer credits may be eligible to enroll in the Guaranteed Admissions Program with UConn.  Students with 15 or fewer credits may enroll in the Dual Admissions Program at Central, Eastern, Southern or Western Connecticut State University.
