Liberal Arts
The HCC associate of arts (AA) and associate of science (AS) liberal arts program is ideal for the student pursuing a general degree. Because society is increasingly more complex, many employers seek employees with a non-specific baccalaureate degree. They desire applicants who possess a body of general knowledge rather than knowledge in a specific concentration. This liberal arts program is designed for the HCC student intending to pursue a baccalaureate degree.

Professional Education
This program is designed for the student intending to transfer to a senior institution to complete a baccalaureate degree. Graduates of four-year baccalaureate programs in this major are typically employed as teachers in elementary schools, secondary schools, colleges and universities, religious organizations, and civic/social organizations.
