Administrative Studies (AOS)

Your interests are unique, varied, and significant, so choosing a program that provides you the flexibility to explore all of them just makes sense. The Administrative Studies program enables students to personalize their options and select from a variety of open electives to best meet each individual’s needs and interests. This career-focused program provides students the ability to choose between two focus options – Business or Medical Office. With a strong set of administrative, computer, and writing skills, graduates of the program are poised for success in their chosen field.

YOU MIGHT LIKE THIS PROGRAM IF:

  • You want the convenience of a flexible curriculum that will give you options and allow you to take courses that cater to your interests and goals.
  • Building a strong set of foundational knowledge and skills is what you’d like to build your expertise on, but you’d also like some concentrated, field-focused abilities to bring to the table.
  • You’d eventually like to obtain your bachelor’s (or master’s!) degree, but earning your associate’s degree and getting some work experience under your belt first sounds like a good idea.
