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.
