Liberal Arts - Advanced Certificate

Program Code: CSA.35390

The Liberal Arts Certificate program is intended for students who are planning on completing an Associate in Arts or Science Degree at Delta College. It is also intended for those planning on transferring to a four-year college or university after completing one year of course work at Delta. Completion of this certificate program will satisfy the MACRAO requirements (a transfer agreement in the State of Michigan that assists students with the transferability of general education requirements-see Transfer Programs and Procedures, MACRAO Articulation Agreements in this section. Required courses in the Liberal Arts Certificate are flexible and may be customized to meet the needs of the student based upon the transfer institution requirements. Most transfer institutions will accept at least 60 credit hours from Delta; therefore students are encouraged to take additional courses beyond the Liberal Arts Certificate requirements. Students seeking the Liberal Arts Certificate must work closely with the transfer school of choice as well as a Delta College Advisor/Counselor to help ensure the appropriate courses are taken at Delta.
