Program Requirements

Program requirements are outlined by the specific technical program sequences in this Catalog. Approximately one-half of each Associate of Applied Science program requirements must include a minimum of 15 additional credits of general education or applied general education (i.e., “basic” coursework), for a total of 30 credits of non-technical coursework. Applied general education includes a focus on “21st century” skills and knowledge, including: information and communication literacy; critical thinking and problem solving; interpersonal and collaborative skills; global awareness, and financial, economic, business and civic literacy. Technical program concentrations should consist of 12 to 16 semester credits of technical specialization including a minimum one-semester credit Capstone Course.

The Capstone Course provides students with opportunities to apply technical, oral, and written skills; to prepare resumes and/or portfolios and develop interview skills; to study history and trends in the profession; and/or to discuss ethical and global issues within the profession. The program requirements are identified in the Associate of Applied Degree program sequences in this Catalog.

Cross-listed Courses

Cross-listed courses are identical courses offered in two or more subject areas. They differ only in subject area code and course number. Credit may be earned once for cross-listed courses. If a course is cross-listed with another course that fills a general education or program requirement, either course meets the requirement.
