Career programs Are designed for students who wish to complete a college program that will prepare them to enter employment at a level of competence requiring more than a high school education, but less than a four-year college or university degree. As such, they do not have A-E sections, but instead have sections that are specific to each program. Students who complete a career program or course will be eligible for an Associate of Science degree, an Associate of Applied Science degree, or a certificate. Career programs are specifically designed for students who wish to prepare for a career through a short, intensive program of specialized study and general education. While the emphasis in career education is on specialized offerings, each degree program includes a selection of courses from an approved core of general education.Associate of Science Associate of
