Associate of Arts (A.A.)

Degree Overview

Our two-year associate of arts degree program offers students a well-rounded education with an emphasis on the humanities and social sciences. Through this unique program, students complete their first two years of college and may graduate with an A.A. degree or complete a bachelor’s degree with another two years of college.

The A.A. degree provides course options in a number of different areas including history, literature, psychology, communications, criminal justice and others. As a Christian college, every degree program at Crown also includes courses on the Old and New Testaments to provide a biblical foundation to empower students to think critically and act with sound ethics.

* Some Christian Studies Core or Major Core classes may be used to fulfill requirements for the General Education Core.
