Express Degree Program

Earn an Associate of Arts in Liberal Arts in two years and only attend class once a week?

Yes, Pima's Express Degree Programs make it possible.

Express Degree Programs, offered at the East Campus, are structured so that you can earn an AA degree in just two years.

The series of 5-6 week express format classes offered at each campus meet once a week and include directed study outside the classroom. For example, a three-credit course might include 25 hours of class time and another 20 hours of directed study, for a total of 45 hours.

While each program is carefully structured so that you can earn a degree in two years, there is still an opportunity to substitute online classes and even the ability to mix it up by taking classes at both campuses. Be sure to talk with an advisor if you are considering substituting courses to ensure you will meet your degree requirements.
