About Crown College

Associate of Arts (A.A.)

The two-year associate of arts degree is designed for students seeking a foundation in humanities and social sciences with a Christian perspective. The broad introduction in humanities and social sciences, offered through the A.A. degree, provides students with a sound foundation to prepare for further studies. All coursework is infused with a biblical worldview leading students to think critically and act with sound ethics.

The department believes that a background of the humanities and social sciences provides A.A. students with a framework to integrate learning from a wide variety of disciplines, resulting in intellectual and spiritual development. The curriculum includes core courses required in four-year degrees at Crown. With help from their adviser, students choose from a broad range of electives according to their educational interests in preparation for further academic work or vocational training.

4 Fine arts courses include music, art, drama, and dance. COM 328  and COM 446  also qualify as fine arts electives. (Only three credits of music organizations and/or lessons can be counted toward humanities/fine arts requirements.)

* Some Christian Studies Core or Major Core classes may be used to fulfill requirements for the General Education Core. If this is done, it may be necessary to take more elective courses to ensure a total of 63 credits is earned. By doing that, the number of electives needed would increase so that the minimum of 63 credits is reached.
