Alliance University’s mission is to provide a Christian academic environment where students can gain a liberal arts education that will serve as a foundation for the pursuit of lifelong learning, ethical living, and a successful career.
Our Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences allows students to explore a rich selection of courses in different fields (and according to their diverse interests) in order to help them gain relevant information and broaden their understanding of several academic disciplines in the arts and sciences.
Alliance University also values our STEMS (science, technology, engineering, math, and statistics) programs. Each one is designed to give our students the necessary foundation for a career or further study in STEMS.
Why Study Liberal Arts & Sciences with an Allied Health Sciences Focus at Alliance University?
This degree is ideal for students interested in a variety of academic fields, but who are not yet ready to commit to a major. Students learn how to think critically, communicate effectively, make connections across extensive fields of knowledge, and cultivate new interests, skills, and talents—all while expanding their vision of the world.
In addition, the majority of the credits earned as part of this program can be applied toward a bachelor’s degree. In fact, graduates who have planned their programs carefully can transfer into certain bachelor’s degree programs as juniors.
