LIT adds Associate of Arts degree for Fall 2014 semester

BEAUMONT – Beginning in Fall 2014, Lamar Institute of Technology will add an Associate of Arts degree to the more than 50 degree and certificate programs already offered.

This degree will serve as a foundation for a Bachelor of Arts degree in other colleges and universities in Texas. Students will be able to attend LIT, complete the Associate of Arts degree, and then transfer to a Texas institution of higher education for a seamless completion of a bachelor’s degree.

The degree consists of 60 hours, comprised of which 42 hours which meet the requirements of the Core Curriculum and then 18 elective credits.

“The timing of the Associate of Arts degree being offered at LIT could not be better, with the creation of new Core requirements for all colleges and universities starting Fall 2014,” said Michelle Davis, chair of the Department of General Education and Developmental Studies.

Students can choose courses in Communication; Mathematics; Life and Physical Sciences; Language, Philosophy and Culture; Creative Arts; American History; Governmental/Political Science; and Social & Behavioral Sciences.

“We are excited to provide students in the Beaumont and surrounding areas the opportunity to earn a degree with 60 academic credit hours and then help them in following their dreams of graduating from a four-year university,” said Davis.

“LIT provides a smaller campus, smaller classroom settings and loyal, dedicated instructors who are experts in their fields of study to assist the student in being successful in this educational setting,” she said.
