Broward College grads are making a meaningful difference as psychologists, case managers, addiction counselors, teachers, HR specialists, government and political leaders. They work in healthcare, business, law, public agencies, nonprofits, K-12 schools, higher education and law enforcement.

The Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree is designed to provide students with the academic and professional skills necessary to succeed in a bachelor’s degree program as well as in their careers.  Broward College’s A.A. degree prepares students to think critically and creatively, communicate effectively, define and analyze real-world problems, and apply information and technology to develop innovative solutions in a dynamic global economy and community. Students who complete the A.A. degree at Broward College are guaranteed to transfer as a junior to a Florida public university or to continue in a bachelor’s degree at Broward College.
