Degree and Certificate Options
This chart contains an explanation of the degree or certificate types that we offer.
Associate in Arts
The Associate in Arts degree (A.A. degree) is a general studies degree. An A.A. Degree will prepare you to transfer to a Florida public university as a junior. As an A.A. student, there are ways to focus in on your intended major. You can follow a transfer plan or choose a pre-major which will help you meet most upper division pre-reqs.
Associate in Science
The Associate in Science degree (A.S. degree) prepares you to enter a specialized career field. It also transfers to the B.A.S. (Bachelor of Applied Science) program offered at some universities. If the program is “articulated,” it will also transfer to a B.A. or B.S. degree program at a designated university.
Bachelor of Science
The B.S. degree prepares you to enter an advanced position within a specialized career field. At Valencia, students must first complete an associate degree before transferring into a baccalaureate program. Bachelor’s degrees require about four years of study (including time spent earning the associate degree).
A certificate prepares you to enter a specialized career field or upgrade your skills for job advancement. Credits earned can be applied toward a related A.S. degree program.
