About Arts & Sciences

Welcome to the Division of Arts and Sciences at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College! If you are interested in College Transfer and/or Associate Degrees in Visual Arts (AFA), Arts (A.A.), or Science (A.S.), you have come to the right place!

This division houses some of the College’s largest departments including English, Mathematics, Biology, and Psychology. This division can help you complete a two-year degree or get some of your general education classes out of the way before heading to a four-year institution to complete your educational journey.

Rowan-Cabarrus’ transfer programs are excellent stepping-stones to a four-year degree. The College offers transfer programs, or associate degrees, in three areas: Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Fine Arts in Visual Arts (AFA), and Associate in Science (AS).

Students who complete a transfer degree may earn up to 60 semester hours to transfer to a University of North Carolina System institution. Students may also earn credit hours to transfer to private colleges and universities. For a smooth transfer, students should coordinate with their chosen college or university to determine which courses they should complete and then, meet with their Rowan-Cabarrus program chair or advisor for further assistance.

The Division of Arts and Sciences is thrilled you chose Rowan-Cabarrus. If we can be of assistance to you, please contact us:
