• Academics
  • Liberal Arts


    There’s a reason why Liberal Arts is the most popular area of study at LaGuardia Community College: it provides students with a comprehensive foundation in humanities, mathematics and the sciences, the social sciences, and language and literature.

     

    Whether you’re undecided about your desired career or want to study a broad range of subjects, the Liberal Arts Core in Social Science and Humanities will allow you to experiment across an array of fields. The Liberal Arts education offered at LaGuardia challenges students to push boundaries while they learn to reason critically, communicate effectively, and make connections across subjects and in the real world.

     

    In addition to the Liberal Arts Core, there are 24 majors and 2 certificate programs within the Liberal Arts area of study to choose from.

     

    LaGuardia graduates who have planned their education carefully can often transfer to four-year institutions as juniors. Meet regularly with a LaGuardia academic advisor and visit the Office of Transfer Services to plan for your graduation and transfer.
