DescriptionThe Associate of Arts degree comprises two years of undergraduate university study in the Arts and Sciences, equivalent to the first two years of a four-year bachelor's degree. While the goal is to provide students with an academic foundation for further university studies, an associate degree is also a stand-alone credential. The Associate of Arts degree is widely recognized by post-secondary institutions in the British Columbia Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT).Students who successfully complete the Associate of Arts degree have an increased likelihood of transferring to a university and entering the third year of a four-year bachelor's degree program.

Students are strongly advised to check the admissions policies of their desired transfer institution, specifically to ensure that they meet any additional criteria for specific program areas, such as majors and minors. A minimum Associate of Arts degree GPA may be required.
