* Other general education requirements are fulfilled by required core and support courses: Communication - WRT 101 and WRT 102; Analysis and Critical Thinking - CHM 151IN and MAT 220; Humanities and Social Sciences - Humanities and Social and Behavioral Science electives; Computer and Information Literacy - core courses fulfill this requirement; I/C/G requirement: Social Science elective

** The Humanities elective fulfills the AGEC intensive writing (I) and global awareness (G) requirements.  The Social and Behavioral Science elective fulfills the cultural diversity (C) requirement.

*** For these concentrations, it is necessary to complete additional transferable electives in order to complete the minimum of 60 credits for this degree. You may choose to complete the AGEC-S by completing an Art course and another Social and Behavioral Science course from the AGEC list as part of these electives. Or, you may choose to transfer to the university without the electives, then transfer credits back to Pima to earn the associate’s degree.  See a Department faculty member for the selection of these courses
