Associate of Arts

Overview of Associate of Arts

The Associate in Arts degree will provide you with a Bible-centered, general course of study preparing you for further undergraduate education at public and private 4-year colleges and universities. The degree is designed to maximize the number of credits which would transfer to other schools, where students might complete programs not offered at Oak Hills.

Students in this program will have a strong foundation in biblical studies and interpretation. Another important characteristic of the program is that all general education courses (such as science, history, English, mathematics and philosophy) are taught from a distinctly Christian worldview, with the expectation that these courses will contribute to students’ growth in faith.

Who Should Apply

Those seeking a Christian education, but wishing to complete a major not offered at Oak Hills.

If you want to deepen your knowledge of the Bible and sharpen your ministry skills, this program is for you!

Career Paths

You will be prepared for empoyment at organizations that require a 2-year degree. Many AA students transfer to other institutions in programs like education, nursing/health care, mass communications, social work, history, English, criminal justice, engineering, and many others.
