Arts and Sciences
Begin here, transfer anywhere!

Planning to earn a bachelor's degree? Complete your general university requirements in the Division of Arts and Sciences at SCC. The division specializes in transfer preparation and students can earn an Associate of Arts degree that is accepted by Washington State's public universities and many private universities. In addition, degrees can be earned in pre-majors, including transfer specialties in business and secondary teaching preparation in math and science. We provide the foundation for many different careers that require a bachelor's degree: teaching, business, management, human resources, social work, medical careers, creative and technical writing, to name just a few. Classes are offered both during the day and in the evening and in a variety of learning modalities, including Web-enhanced and online courses. SCC Tutoring Services offers tutoring in most disciplines to promote student success. The math and English labs also offer classes and assistance in those disciplines. Tutoring Services has a drop-in computer center with Internet access and computer technicians to assist you in computer usage. If you are entering college many years after high school or GED completion, our faculty and staff are ready to help you succeed.

Departments within Arts and Sciences include English and Foreign Languages, Communication Studies, Social Sciences and Humanities, Mathematics, and Science. Our new Science and Mathematics Building was completed in the fall of 2006.

The tradition of the Arts and Sciences Division at Spokane Community College is firmly grounded by liberal arts roots. The liberal arts focus on giving students the ability to comprehend and enrich their lives through the experience of learning. You will:

  • Achieve with confidence skills in computation, writing, and speaking.
  • Analyze and enjoy art, poetry, music, literature, drama, and philosophy.
  • Understand ourselves as individuals and as a part of history and social groups.
  • Study what it means to be an American as well as to appreciate other countries, cultures, and languages.
  • Develop analytical skills and enhance understanding and wonder of the natural world through the sciences.

The workplace of today has a renewed appreciation for employees with a liberal arts education. Opportunities are available through the Arts and Sciences Division to enroll in cooperative education, participate in volunteer service to the community, and receive work-study grants. Students can also gain great experiences by joining the college newspaper staff or one of our numerous student clubs, or by participating in intramural sports or on an intercollegiate athletic team.

The mission of our faculty is first and foremost to teach well. Classes are small enough that students can be given individualized attention. Our goal is to help students realize and fulfill their potential so they can make a difference in our community and our world.
