MCC awards the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree for various career and technical occupations. While each campus offers some of the same applied science degrees, others are offered only at one of the campuses.
Graduates must successfully complete a course of study that requires at least 60 credit hours for an Associate in Applied Science degree.
Each degree includes both general education requirements and specialized requirements. Some programs also require general education or other electives to bring students total credits to the number needed for a degree. A minimum of 18 credit hours of general education is required for an A.A.S. degree. Within these 18 credit hours, all A.A.S. degrees will have nine credit hours in ENGL 101 or 102 or COMM 100 or 102 AND the American Institutions. The remaining nine credit hours will provide students with educational experiences to complement MCC's established general education components.
