Whether you’re planning to transfer to a university or enter directly into a career, we have degree and accelerated programs to get you there. Plus, with more than 140 degree and certificate programs, accelerated training and continuing education available, you’ll be able to pursue your passion—whether that’s a new career path or professional advancement in your current position.
An associate in arts degree is a general studies degree that prepares you to transfer to a Florida public university as a junior. You’ll complete all of your general education requirements for a bachelor’s and take electives that focus on your intended major. Follow a Degree Pathway which will help you meet many of your upper-division prerequisites.
An associate in science degree helps you gain the skills you need to enter into a specialized career field. Classes teach you theory, but also give you hands-on training. With this type of degree, you’ll have two options: Enter directly into a high-skill, high-wage profession upon graduation, or transfer into a bachelor’s degree program.
A bachelor's degree offers a path to continue your education beyond the associate level. After completing your associate degree, you can move into one of our bachelor’s programs or transfer to a university. This may also include going into a Bachelor of Applied Science program, which incorporates real-world skills to help advance your career.
A certificate program increases your skillset and prepares you for immediate entry into an in-demand career. Many of these programs also offer articulated credits—meaning you earn college credit while taking certificate classes, which can be later applied to a related A.S. degree.
Accelerated Skills Training programs focus on hands-on training designed to help you enter a new career field or advance your current skillset in a short amount of time. Earn industry-recognized credentials, train in essential workplace skills and receive job placement support. It’s your accelerated path to a high-demand, higher-wage career.
Continuing education programs are designed for personal and professional advancement. We offer a variety of classes, seminars and certification programs to help you—whether you want to update your skills, prepare for a new position or career or learn a new language.
Language programs can help you learn another language—for professional or personal reasons. Classes will increase your communication skills in the new language across a wide range of topics. Many programs are available on campus or online, and are offered in different levels—from low beginner to high advanced.
