Arts & Sciences
Whether you would like to earn an associate degree, prepare to transfer to a four-year college or university, or just take some individual courses that interest you, the Arts and Sciences division at Indian Hills is ready to help you reach your goals.
We offer four degree options:
- Associate of Arts (A.A.)
- Associate of Science (A.S.)
- Associate of Applied Science in Criminal Justice (A.A.S.)
- Associate of Applied Science in Culinary Arts (A.A.S.)
In order to provide direction to Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.) students who have very definite career goals, as well as those who are experimenting with several areas of study, we offer focus areas that suggest courses for students who wish to focus on a specific major. The "Undecided" focus area suggests courses for students who do not wish to focus on any particular area.
Note: The recommended courses in each focus area should not be considered a substitute for consulting with an academic advisor.
In addition to a wide variety of on-campus options, students may also complete Arts and Sciences courses leading to an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree or an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree through Online Learning. It is even possible to complete an entire A.A. or A.S. degree online. Talk to an Academic Advisor for assistance, if you would like to explore this option.
