If you are a working adult interested in earning a liberal arts degree, the Program for Adult College Education (PACE) is for you. You can complete an Associate in Arts degree in 2-1/2 years. You may transfer in a maximum of 12 units.
As a PACE student, you will travel together in cohorts through a fixed sequence of courses, which are scheduled in the evenings and Saturdays. You may begin the program in the fall or the spring semester.

With this degree you may chose to transfer into a wide variety of degree programs such as social sciences, humanities, and education.
