The two-year program listed below is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Arts transfer degree from GTCC and prepare a student for obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy at University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Appalachian State University, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, or Guilford College (there is no Philosophy major at North Carolina A & T State University).

However, students from GTCC seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. These institutions may require different courses within the various areas of General Education. Students interested in transferring to a four-year college or university after GTCC should consult with the institution they will be attending, their faculty advisor, and/or the GTCC Student Success Center.

Upon successful completion of this degree, graduates will be able to:

  • Use strategies to acquire new information in philosophy.
  • Apply philosophical theories and their associated concepts to relevant issues.
