Associate Degrees and Academic Pathways

The Associate of Arts degree (A.A.) and Associate of Science degree (A.S.) prepare students who are planning further study in many disciplines at Coastal Georgia. These degrees consist of 42 hours of the required core curriculum courses and 18 hours of lower level courses related to a bachelor’s degree field of study.

An Academic Pathway is an advising guide to help students prepare for their intended bachelor’s degree major. By following the course of study for either an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science pathway, students will have the required general education courses to move into a four-year bachelor’s program of study. A pathway is not a major and will not be represented on the diploma.

Students should meet with an advisor in COMPASS Career and Academic Advising who can guide them in selecting and planning for an appropriate academic pathway. Students are also encouraged to investigate specific course requirements for the bachelor’s program they are intending to pursue.

The College of Coastal Georgia offers three academic pathways:

  1. General Studies
  2. Health Professions
  3. STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics – including the REP Regents Engineering Program).
Career Associate Degrees

Coastal Georgia also offers three Career Associate Degrees that are designed to prepare students for employment upon graduation. These degrees require 60-70 credits, with at least 20 credits of general education courses.
