Programmes of Study

Associate of Arts Degree (AA)

The AA degree is designed to prepare students for entry into the junior (3rd) year of a four-year institution. The AA degree is a university parallel, college transfer degree comprised of at least sixty (60) college credits of which thirty six (36) are general education credits.

Associate in Science Degree (AS)

The AS degree is designed to prepare students for entry into the junior (3rd) year of a four-year degree in the science disciplines. The AS degree is a university parallel, college transfer degree comprised of at least sixty (60) college credits of which thirty-six (36) are general education credits.

Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS)

The AAS degree is designed to prepare students for immediate entry or advancement into employment requiring specialised  skills. The degree consists of at least sixty (60) college credits of which at least twenty (20) credits must be general education. An AAS degree programme does not necessarily prepare an individual for entry into the junior (3rd) year of a four-year  institution.

The goal of an AAS is to earn a degree, which should lead to a productive career in a field requiring specialised  training. Some AAS degrees may articulate into upper level programmes. If a decision is made at a later date to attend a university, additional course work may be required at the freshman or sophomore level.

Diploma Programmes

A diploma programme is designed to provide the graduate with skills and competencies for immediate employment in the particular occupational field, but to a higher-level training standard than attained in a certificate programme. Diploma programmes consist of courses that are part of an associate degree programme. Students in this programme may be able to transfer some of these credits into an associate degree programme at a later time depending on the programme of study.

Certificate Programmes

The certificate programme is designed to provide the graduate with the opportunity for immediate employment in a particular  occupational field and not generally designed for transfer. The certificate documents that the student has attained job entry competence and is ready at an entry level employment standard. These programmes may be more appropriate for “traditional” students (between 17-24).


*Not every programme listed will be offered every semester. The College reserves the right not to offer a programme depending upon availability of instructors, facilities and student enrolment.
