College Catalog: Areas of Study (Meta-Majors) Overview

PDCCC offers General Studies (AA&S General Studies and CERT General Education), and 60 other programs in seven meta-majors (areas of study): Health Sciences; Administrative and Office Support; Education, Business and Management; Industrial Technology and Trades; Science, Technology, and Computing; and Public Safety.

In several areas, credentials are “stackable,” meaning that students can begin by first earning a Career Studies Certificate and then progress to additional certificates or a degree. Contact a PDCCC dean or lead faculty with questions about Programs and Areas of Study.
