Liberal Education A.A.

The program is designed for students to receive an Associate of Arts Degree, Liberal Education. This Degree Program is a two-year course of study designed intentionally as an exploration of and exposure to many disciplines, development of a wide breadth of understanding of liberal education and preparation for transfer to four-year institutions. The Degree Program is centered and infused with culturally relevant material. It is the intention of this course of study to provide students an exposure to the Ojibwe language and allow them the opportunity to understand Anishinaabe values and how these values can provide a foundation for lifelong learning and community involvement. The credits a student earns at Leech Lake Tribal College are accredited and will transfer to colleges of the student’s choice, depending on transfer equivalency guidelines.
