Program is also available online.
This program allows students to earn an Associate in Applied Science degree by building on occupational/technical courses and certificates.

The program also allows students to combine coursework from several occupational areas to prepare for a job that requires multidisciplinary skills.

What Students Say About Online Classes
“My teacher posted his lectures and activities on Blackboard weekly, so I was able to complete all required class work and tests at my own leisure. Most importantly, I learned a ton in the course, and my excellent instructor was available by email around the clock.”—Wendy L., 48
