Programs may require at least one literature class, whether you’re planning on transferring to a four-year school or completing your degree at Lane. Literature studies help strengthen skills of inquiry and analysis to prepare for any field. Some of our students continue their literature studies with plans to teach or to continue onto graduate school. The Oregon Arts Transfer Degree (AAOT) will help you take the classes you need to transfer to a four-year institution to earn your degree and launch your career. Because the AAOT is a transfer degree, you’ll take a wide variety of classes in math, science, arts & letters, and more, preparing you for junior level status at most Oregon four-year schools.
