The Associate of Arts Degree with Designation in Economics prepares students to transfer as a junior to a four-year institution in Colorado in order to pursue a bachelor’s degree in economics. Bachelor degree curriculums allow students to prepare for graduate school, for teaching careers, or for employment in areas that require economic analysis, such as actuarial science, investment banking, finance or statistics. Students would also be prepared to work in commercial banks, finance companies and insurance companies.
The Associate of Arts Degree with Designation in Economics is designed for students who want to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree in economics. Completion of the AA degree completes the first two years of an economics bachelor’s degree and guarantees transfer at junior standing with no more than 60 remaining credits to meet the graduation requirements for a bachelor’s degree in economics.
In addition to the requirements listed below, you must:
