Purpose: The career studies certificate program is a response to the non-conventional short-term program of studies needed by many adults within the college’s region. It offers a series of specialized program options which represent a wide variety of adult career and academic interest course areas. The options within this program are intended to represent the minimum amount of college course work considered representative of these fields of study. Each of the program options is designed as a distinct “mini-curriculum” within a broader range of adult educational possibilities.

Admission Requirements: Applicants should meet the general requirements for admission to the college. Placement tests may be required in some areas.

This career studies certificate is designed to prepare individuals with an overview of entry-level digital design skills and can be combined with a General Studies AA&S degree to fill in the required electives or prepare career switchers who already have a degree.  Students will learn basic skills in digital design, animation, mobile app design, and web design to help them determine a pathway to a career in digital design.  Students will also have the opportunity to earn certifications in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Animate and CIW Web Site Development.
