Degree Options

Students may earn an Associate in Arts (AA) Degree, which is designed for students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate institution with junior standing. Students pursuing this degree should plan their programs at Walla Walla Community College in accordance with the requirements of the institution to which they plan to transfer.

To earn the Associate in Arts (AA) Degree, a student must complete at least 90 credit hours in college transfer courses numbered 100 or above with a minimum college-level grade point average of 2.0, and include a minimum of 63 credit hours in general education courses. Courses cross-listed in two subject areas can be counted for credit in only one area.

Preparation for Success

Because of the strenuous and time-consuming training required, some dancers view formal education as secondary. However, a broad, general education including music, literature, history, and the visual arts is helpful in the interpretation of dramatic episodes, ideas, and feelings. Dancers sometimes conduct research to learn more about the part they are playing.
