Liberal Arts and Sciences with Advisement Area in Social Science

Sample Schedule

The schedule below shows how the requirements for the A.A. Liberal Arts and Science degree with an Advisement Area for transfer in Social Science may be met in four semesters. You also should check with your transfer institution with regard to specific courses and requirements. This schedule is an example of one of many possible schedules that might be followed by a full-time student. Many students attending FLCC who have work and/or family obligations choose a different sequence of courses and may take more than four semesters to fulfill the requirements for the degree. Similarly, students who find they need to take some preparatory coursework may plan a schedule that takes more than four semesters to complete. You should consult with your advisor when planning your schedule.
