Art, Humanities & Social Sciences

Courses parallel those taught in the first two years at a four-year college or university, in a range of disciplines that includes history, foreign languages, psychology, and fine arts. 

The AHSS Division offers two degrees--Associate in Arts (AA) and Associate in Fine Arts (AFA)--which provide a solid general education foundation for students pursuing a four-year degree in a variety of disciplines, including liberal arts, business, education, social sciences, or nursing, and professional programs requiring a liberal arts background.

College/University Transfer Resources

The faculty in the AHSS Division, with Masters and Doctorate Degrees from prominent universities, have expertise in many academic fields. They put this expertise to one main purpose: to teach. The AHSS Division, like Wake Tech Community College overall, takes pride in its faculty's innovative and passionate promotion of student success.

The “Associate in Fine Arts: Music and Music Education” degree program is no longer accepting new/additional students.  Fine Arts students may want to learn more about Wake Tech’s “Associate in Fine Arts: Visual Art” (AFA) degree program, which is accepting new/additional students.
