Preparing students to go to work
Career and technical education degree, certificate, and career studies certificate programs prepare students for employment. These programs are designed to meet regional demand for technicians, paraprofessionals, and skilled craft workers, and specialized office workers in industry, business, government, and other professional fields.
These programs normally require two years or less of training beyond high school to prepare students for success in meeting the demands in business, health and medicine, industry, service, and other technical and occupational fields.

In selecting courses, students are expected to follow the curricula guides for their intended majors and specializations. Where appropriate, students may select courses from lists of approved courses to meet requirements in the degrees or certificates.
While general education courses other than those designed specifically for transfer may be used to meet portions of the general education requirements, principles published by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges require that general education courses be general in nature and not “…narrowly focused on those skills, techniques, and procedures peculiar to a particular occupation or profession.” A.A.S. degrees generally are not designed for transfer, but students can increase the transferability of selected applied degrees by substituting transfer courses where appropriate to meet program requirements.
