Programs of Study

Union offers two-year programs leading to the Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, and the Associate in Applied Science degrees, and programs leading to the Certificate and Certificate of Achievement. The course requirements for each program are outlined in this catalog.

All matriculated students, whether they plan to transfer to a four-year institution or complete their college careers at the end of their programs, are eligible for the Associate degree, the Certificate, or the Diploma if all graduation requirements set forth in this catalog have been met. The curriculum programs are offered as guidelines and courses do not necessarily need to be taken in the order suggested. Please note, however, that many courses require prerequisites or corequisites.

Academic Programs are subject to change. Students should contact the office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs for the most current information.
