Program description

Associate of Arts

The Associate of Arts (AA) degree prepares students for life as educated people and lays a solid foundation for further study.

The Associate of Arts (AA) degree lays a solid foundation for further study. This 60-credit (20 courses) program prepares you to transfer to research or teaching universities to complete a bachelor’s degree or as a credential to enter the labor market. The AA degree is accepted for transfer into bachelor's degree programs at University Canada West (UCW) and all British Columbia degree-granting institutions, provided other admission requirements are met.

Graduates of the AA program will develop these skills:

  • Workplace problem-solving skills

In September 2021, UCW received 5 stars rating from the QS Stars higher education rating system, the world’s most popular source of comparative data on university performance.

As part of the QS Stars audit process, institutions receive an overall rating of between zero and 5+ stars, as well as a rating in at least eight of 13 key areas. We have achieved 5 stars in Teaching, Employability, Online Learning, Academic Development, Social Responsibilities, and Inclusiveness and 4 stars for Internationalisation. UCW is the third university in Canada, and the first in British Columbia, to receive a 5 Star rating from QS Stars. There are only a total of seven institutions in the United States and Canada to receive a 5 Star rating.
