Associate of Arts in Humanities

*Pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

The Associate of Arts in Humanities (AAH) at Texas Baptist College introduces students to an education for life—that is, for living the truly human life; the life of virtue, of purpose, and of properly ordered desires and longings made possible by Jesus (John 10:10). This degree embarks on an exploration of worldview questions and ideas of the classical and Christian liberal arts tradition aimed at shaping students into persons who flourish in whichever vocational context to which they may be called.
