HistoryThis two-year transfer program leads to an Associate of Arts Degree. The curriculum is designed for students pursuing a baccalaureate degree in various areas of history. It provides students with the background in history and general studies necessary for advanced work at a four-year institution. Students should check with the institution to which they are transferring or an advisor for any other requirements.
MusicRend Lake College's Music Program offers vocal and instrumental options with courses applicable to an Associate in Fine Arts Degree. This degree will require a total of 64 credit hours. General Education courses are described in the Illinois General Education Core Curriculum. Because completion of the A.F.A. curriculum does not fulfill the requirements of the Illinois General Education Core, students will need to complete the general education requirements of the institution to which they transfer. Consult with your counselor or music faculty advisor for more information.
