General Studies

CAREER PROGRAMS LEADING TO A.A.S. DEGREES AND DIPLOMAS

Career programs are specifically designed for students who wish to prepare for a career through an intensive program of specialized study and general studies. They are also planned for students who wish to broaden and enrich their general education in preparation for a more enlightened and effective participation in society. Students must complete credits hours of electives and/or technical electives required by State Standards for a specific program of study. While the emphasis in career education is on specialized offerings, each A.A.S. Degree program includes a selection of courses from an approved core of General Studies including the areas of English, Mathematics/Natural Sciences, and Social/ Behavioral Sciences (listed below).
