General Studies Transfer Associate of Arts

The Associate of Arts Degree Transfer Program serves students who intend to transfer to a four-year university. The program provides students with an excellent foundation to continue in higher education, with an emphasis in humanities and social sciences, focusing electives on furthering those content areas or on business education.

By completing the degree through Lakeshore, students can transfer directly with junior status to Lakeland University, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee or University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. Students will have enough flexibility for broad major exploration, regardless of a transfer destination. With an optional pre-business focus, students receive the education necessary to be successful in business and economics programs at four-year institutions. The program helps students meet most entry-level requirements and even some program requirements for bachelor’s degrees in the field.
