Degree programs and requirements:

        Each degree offered by Charter Oak (Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Bachelor of Arts,
        and Bachelor of Science) requires you to earn a certain number of credits in the area of Liberal
        Arts. Find out what is meant by Liberal Arts and how many Liberal Arts credits are required for
        each type of degree.

        What’s the difference between a certificate and a degree? What types of certificates does
        Charter Oak offer?

        Define a “concentration” as it is used at Charter Oak. (Hint: it’s one requirement for a Bachelor’s

        What is a “student learning outcome?” Try to explain it in your own words.
                                                                                 Version 1, Fall 2010 Term 1

       students: even though you are not required to choose a concentration for your degree, answer
       this question as if you are planning to go on to earn a Bachelor’s degree from Charter Oak after
       you complete your Associate’s degree.)
