Description

The Career Studies major is the first step in the pathway to a specific major in any allied health or trade & technical major for many individuals without prior college or whose placement testing suggests a need for remedial work prior to program admission.

The career studies pathway focuses the student’s academic work to specific courses which are required by the academic major they ultimately intend to pursue.

Additionally, for individuals who have vast occupational experience, the career studies pathway allows for the awarding of prior learning credits for that experience and prior learning.

This individual would complete specific general education courses required to meet the expectations of those exiting with an associate degree (an example would be an individual who had prior learning/work experience credits awarded for their work-related learning in auto collision repair but no post-secondary academic credits – upon completion of the general education and related technical courses, this individual would earn an applied science credential (AAS) in Career Studies with a concentration in Auto Collision Repair.

This pathway is analogous to a registered apprentice who pursues their academic credential.
