Degree Program Overview

At Georgia Military College we offer three degree types; an Associate of Arts (AA), an Associate of Science (AS) and an Associate of Applied Science (AAS).   

Associate of Arts (AA)

The core curriculum of the AA degree at GMC includes those courses that the faculty members of the college have identified as central to the development of the proficiencies of a Georgia Military College student. The core courses are also those in common with the core requirements of most senior colleges and universities throughout the United States. This curriculum facilitates transfer, after graduation from GMC, to a four-year program at senior colleges.

Associate of Science (AS)

The core curriculum of the AS degree at GMC includes those courses which the faculty of the college have identified as central to the development of the proficiencies of a Georgia Military College student. The core courses are also those in common with the core requirements of most senior colleges and universities throughout the United States. This curriculum facilitates transfer, after graduation from GMC, to a four-year program at senior colleges.

Associate of Applied Science

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree provides the educational background necessary for a chosen career field or profession and for transfer into career oriented Bachelors degree programs. While some four-year colleges offer the bachelor of applied science degree, many do not. Therefore, students completing the AAS degree who have decided to pursue a higher degree, need to ensure their selected four-year college offers the Bachelor of Applied Science or similar degree in their concentration degree prior to enrolling.

Please note that many colleges who do not offer the BAS degree may accept core curriculum course work on a course-by-course evaluation for transfer.
