The Associate of Arts program is the first step for adult students with little or no college credit. Associates degrees are generally considered to be two-year degrees, but can be finished much more quickly under Rochester College’s accelerated format.
Students who obtain an Associate of Arts degree frequently continue their studies in one of CEL’s Bachelor Degree completion programs.
This program is offered at our main campus in Rochester Hills, and at Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts in Southfield.
