Literature & Language
The Associate of Arts degree in English prepares students to enter ABAC’s Writing and Communication track in the Rural Studies Program and be prepared to move into jobs that put theory into practice. Students complete projects and internships that build resumes and create contacts for future employment. Students may also transfer to a senior institution for degrees in English and English Education, and then enter the workforce in a variety of writing, editing, and publishing occupations, or teaching. Both options prepare students for graduate programs.
The Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts prepares students to enter any of three concentrations in the unique Rural Studies Program: Writing and Communication, Politics and Modern Cultures, Social and Community Development. This broad-based associate’s degree also allows students to explore liberal arts areas before choosing a particular field of study at the senior institution.
