The A.A.S. degrees and Certificates

South offers over 25 career-focused professional and technical programs designed to get people the education they need to secure good paying jobs in today’s skill-focused economy. With two-year associate degree and shorter-term certificate options, we have a program to match your skills and passion!

The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees and certificates available through the Professional and Technical Education Department are designed for individuals who want to prepare for immediate employment. In some cases, the credits you earn for these degrees may be applied toward study at a four year school, but are not generally intended for transfer. South has articulation agreements with a growing number of colleges. The A.A.S.-T degrees are transferable to these institutions.
