Associate

If you’re planning on getting a bachelor’s degree, then the Associate of Arts (AA) is for you. The AA satisfies the first two years at a college/university but at a much more affordable cost and smaller class sizes.  The AA includes Broward College’s general education curriculum and elective credits.  Students pursuing the AA use the elective credits to satisfy the prerequisite requirements for bachelor degree majors.  Broward College offers a variety of courses to help students appropriately prepare for seamless transfer to a bachelor’s degree program at BC or another institution.

Other Ways to Learn

Learning Communities (LCs), also called "cohorts," are ideal if you prefer a team approach to learning both in and out of the classroom where you, your classmates and teachers work closely together.  Broward College offers the following Learning Communities:

  • Concept Themed Learning Communities are two or more classes that connect their curriculum by sharing learning activities themed on topics intended to engage students’ personal interests. Past LCs have been thematically based on Food, Sustainability, and the Apocalypse.    
  • Pathway Themed Learning Communities are learning communities where the curriculum of two or more contextualized classes are combined by share learning activities and assignments themed for students’ projected career path.  One of the biggest appeals of a pathway themed learning community is that it offers the chance to link several disciplines at once to your academic pathway of study.

A Contextualized Course is a class that offers learning activities and assignments themed for students’ projected career paths.  For instance, in a Freshman Composition class, you may be asked to write an argumentative essay based on an issue impacting your future career, or in a math course, your instructor may have you focus on equations set in scenarios about your future career.
