Liberal Arts - Associate of Science

Associate of Science (AS)

Students who intend to continue their education at a baccalaureate degree granting college or university can benefit from the University Transfer Liberal Arts Program. With a greater emphasis on science and mathematics, the Liberal Arts-Associate of Science degree is available to students at Mid-State through a special partnership with Nicolet College and provides a foundation for success by offering liberal arts courses equal to those found in the first two years of a four-year degree. Students complete coursework at Mid-State and graduate with a Nicolet Liberal Arts-Associate of Science degree.

Students who complete an associate degree often have the benefit of a degree-to-degree transfer, where universities grant junior status and automatically waive specific lower-division requirements, such as general degree requirements, regardless of individual courses taken at Mid-State Technical College.

The Liberal Arts degree programs at Mid-State allow students to obtain an associate degree from Nicolet College that transfers to numerous colleges and universities, including every campus in the University of Wisconsin system. Up to 30 of the program’s 60 credits can be Mid-State courses—the remainder are completed with Nicolet College. Students will receive all the cost savings and the convenience of a complete liberal arts transfer degree while taking classes at Mid-State campuses with the help of TelePresence, online, and hybrid delivery methods.

What You'll Learn

Students in the Liberal Arts-Associate of Science (University Transfer) program take courses to meet the general requirements of a four-year degree, just like at a four-year campus. Through inquiry, observation, and analysis, students gain knowledge and skills in the arts and sciences, which enable them to broaden their perspective, increase problem-solving skills, and express themselves effectively in both writing and speaking. Students take courses within a core curriculum, with an emphasis on science and mathematics.
