Students can choose from more than 60 different areas of study at Schoolcraft College. In addition, Schoolcraft offers a variety of paths by which students can pursue their education and career goals.
Skills certificates average five or six courses, requiring 16–19 credit hours. Most skills certificates can be completed in only one or two semesters of full-time study.
Certificates average 10–12 courses, requiring 27–48 credit hours, depending on the program. By attending Schoolcraft College full-time, students can earn a certificate in as little as two or three semesters. Most credits earned for a certificate can also be applied to an associate degree in the same, or a similar, area of study.
Associate degrees average 20–22 courses, requiring 60–80 credit hours, depending on the program. Associate degrees generally take four or five semesters of full-time study, or approximately two years to complete. Occupational program degrees are designed to prepare students for employment upon completion of their associate degree. Transfer associate degrees, which are offered in several areas of study, are designed to prepare those students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university after completing their coursework at Schoolcraft College.
Post-associate certificates average five or six courses, requiring an average of 16 credit hours. They can generally be completed in one or two semesters of full-time study. A student may enter a post-associate program after earning an associate degree from any accredited college and provides the degree holder with advanced job skills.
Courses are offered in a number of subject areas to which there is not a certificate or degree program available. However many of these courses can be applied toward a Schoolcraft certificate or degree in another area of study. These courses can be taken for personal or professional interest, or for transfer to a four-year college or university.
