General Technology (A.A.S.)


Return to: Programs of Study

Major in General Technology (A.A.S.)

(Designed for the student who does not intend to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program.)

This cross disciplinary degree program provides an opportunity for students to select a combination of courses from programs that will allow them to meet specific career-related objectives and gain a strong background in general education, including effective communication and problem-solving skills.

If a student has successfully completed a recognized Department of Labor apprenticeship program, block credit for up to 15 hours may be awarded. See the Business and Technology division chair for more information. Credit will not be awarded by Columbia State until a student has successfully completed 15 hours of college level work at Columbia State and all required developmental studies courses.

Students who have earned a Tennessee Technology Center (TTC) diploma may be awarded 30 hours of block credit toward the General Technology degree (see “External Credit through Tennessee Technology Centers” on the Academic Information page).
