Liberal Arts AA

Candidates for an Associate in Arts degree must complete 60 credits of acceptable college work, including 46 credits of required core courses with a minimum grade point ratio of 2.00. Up to 64 credits can be earned in the Associate in Arts degree prior to transfer to an upper-division program.

Students at Petrocelli College are also permitted to take selected electives from the many and varied course offerings of:

  • University College, including the School of Education, and the School of Nursing and Allied Health;
  • Silberman College of Business; and
  • Becton College of Arts and Sciences.

Certain elective courses critical in the development of an upper-division major, such as accounting, economics and business law for the business major, are offered at Petrocelli College as part of the regular College program. A student is, therefore, able to build toward a major at Fairleigh Dickinson University through the use of a carefully selected elective program.

In addition to the wide variety of University electives, the College offers certain courses designed to complement the basic College program. These courses are reviewed regularly, and changes are effected to suit the needs of the student.
