Three Rivers' Associate of Arts Degree, General Education pathway is designed to provide a well-rounded introduction to the Liberal Arts for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university.

This degree is an option if you are unsure which major you want to pursue. It allows you to complete the basic freshman and sophomore courses in English, science, math, social studies, and communications required for most bachelor's degrees.

The Three Rivers General Education pathway allows you to broaden your general knowledge while offering an affordable way to explore academic goals and interests. Three Rivers' class sizes are small, offering more personalized instruction than at a large university. The faculty hold advanced degrees in the specialties they teach.
