Associate in Science and College Credit Certificate Programs

Associate in Science degree programs are designed to prepare students for immediate entry or advancement into employment requiring specialized skills. The programs consist of at least sixty (60) credits in two basic areas. One area is specialized courses in the career area, and the second is General Education courses. General Education courses help students become well-rounded individuals capable of thinking and acting as mature, educated, and enlightened citizens.

Students working toward an Associate in Science degree are not necessarily preparing for transfer to a university. Earning one of the degrees prepares students for a career that requires study beyond high school, but does not require a four year degree. Students who have earned an Associate in Science degree may be qualified to enter into a Bachelor program at Pensacola State College. Students deciding to attend a university may be required to do additional work at the freshman or sophomore level. Students are encouraged to discuss career plans and seek advising assistance from a program contact or department head identified for each program.
