Associate in Applied Science Degree Programs

The Associate in Applied Science degree programs are designed to prepare persons for technician-level occupations. More emphasis is given to theory than in diploma courses. Also, roughly one-half of the course requirements are in general education and the sciences underlying the particular occupational area. A core of general competencies in communication, computation, the use of technology, global awareness/diversity, and critical thinking must be met by all graduates of associate degree programs. These requirements are met through a variety of student learning outcomes identified in the General Education Assessment Plan and documented through the General Education Assessment Report issued annually and posted on the CCC&TI Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research webpage.
