Concentrations are available to all declared associate degree students as an option in the Landmark College curriculum. A concentration is required for the A.A. in General Studies but is not required to earn the other associate degrees.

A concentration focuses on an area of interest that a student wishes to explore. A concentration could include prerequisite course work that articulates with a Landmark College bachelor’s degree. A completed concentration is noted on a student’s degree transcript and serves as further demonstration of a student’s intellectual persistence and dedication to a particular academic discipline.

A concentration requires 15 – 16 credits of courses at the 1000 or 2000 level from a specific discipline as indicated in the concentration listing. Students must earn an average of C or better in the courses applicable to the concentration. Students may apply transfer credits toward the achievement of a concentration.
