Carson-Newman offers an Associate Degree Program. This program is a unique way to gain a breadth of knowledge in the liberal arts leading to a two year credential and to earn credits which can also be applied toward a four year degree.
Associate degrees require a minimum of 60 hours. The core curriculum includes study in communication, biblical traditions, mathematics, science, and personal and social awareness. Remaining requirements may include courses in Religion (for Christian Ministries) or elective courses for the Liberal Arts or General Studies emphasis.
Below is a list of advising guides created with the intention of assisting students in the Associate Degree program who have the intention of completing their Bachelors Degree in 4 years. These guides will help students chose what courses to take while in their first two years so they will be on track to graduate with their Bachelors Degree in two years after their Associate graduation.
