Programs of Study

Our programs are made up of two types of degrees: the Associate of Science (A.S.) and the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S).

Associate of Science (A.S.)

The Associate of Science degree (A.S.) is geared for those students who wish to balance a liberal arts education with career-oriented courses. The primary purpose of the degree is to:

  • provide the credentials for a specific career
  • prepare graduates for transfer to a four-year college

The extent to which credits transfer to a four-year college varies with the specific program completed and the subsequent major selected. Specific transfer agreements exist with selected four-year colleges for each A.S. program. Approximately one-half of the course work consists of liberal arts or general education credits and one-half is career-oriented courses.

Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.)

The Associate in Applied Science degree (A.A.S.) is intended for those students who plan to use the competence gained through their degree for immediate employment. The A.A.S. degree is granted in a specific major and typically at least one-half of the course work is in the program area, approximately one-third is in general education and liberal arts, and the balance of credits are either in the program area or general education depending on the specific major chosen.

The A.A.S. degree is not designed to transfer to a four-year college. However, the general education and liberal arts courses typically do transfer and some of the career-oriented courses may also transfer to specific majors at selected schools.
