The two-year General Education program provides students opportunities to study English, literature, fine arts, philosophy, social science, science, and mathematics.

This program is designed for students who wish to complete two years of college and are not planning to transfer to four-year institutions. Many of the courses may, however, transfer depending on the senior institution and the degree major on a course-by-course basis.

The online classes offered by Rowan-Cabarrus were a perfect fit for my busy schedule.

I had a wonderful experience. The instructors were great, they were attentive and gave personal attention. I wasn’t just a number.
