Programs of Study
Programs of study leading to an associate in arts degree, associate in science degree, associate in arts for transfer, associate in science for transfer, or certificate are listed alphabetically on the pages that follow. Programs which lead to four-year universities and transfer, do not necessarily reflect the transfer requirements of specific schools.
If a student wishes to receive an associate degree in a specific discipline, the requirements as set forth must be met. However, if planning to complete a program for transfer, students should note that transfer requirements for both the major and general education vary widely. It is recommended that the students review the college catalog of the university to which they plan to transfer and consult with an Allan Hancock College counselor to complete an educational plan in planning transfer objectives.
TECH PREP - Tech Prep is a carefully designed curriculum that engages students in a four-year program (two years of high school and two years of community college) to gain the knowledge, skills, and values required for technical careers.
A Tech Prep education (1) leads to an associate degree or certificate, (2) provides technical preparation, (3) builds student competence in mathematics, science, and communications through a sequential course of study, and (4) leads to placement in related employment or additional training. Tech Prep programs and courses are identified throughout the descriptions of degrees and Announcement of Courses.
