• Choosing Major/Earning Degree

       How do I choose the right major or decide my career goal?
       An Academic Advisor is available, who can communicate with Deaf and
       Hard-of-Hearing students, to assist you in your academic and career
       planning, course advisement, registration assistance, and personal and
       reasonable accommodations.

       What happens if I cannot decide on a major?
       PDA can provide you with decision-making and life-planning skills that prepare
       you for life-long success. We’ll help you learn about different majors and their
       relationship to your career goals, help you choose a major, and assist you in
       selecting an alternative major if necessary.

       How many credits do I have to earn for an Associate’s Degree?
       You need 60 credits or more depending on your major.

       How long does it typically take to complete the AA or AS degree?
       Two to three years.

       Will LaGuardia Community College help me transfer to a senior college?
       PDA will show you how to select the courses necessary to complete your
       degree requirements. You’ll also explore transfer options and learn to use
       transfer articulation agreements and college catalogs.
