Degree Programs


Sussex County Community College offers programs leading to the Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Fine Arts (A.F.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), and Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees and programs leading to Professional Certificates.

All matriculated students, whether they plan to transfer to a four-year institution or complete their college careers at the end of their programs, are eligible for the associate degree or certificate if all graduation requirements set forth in this catalog have been met. The program outlines are offered as guidelines and courses do not necessarily need to be taken in the order suggested. Please note that many courses require prerequisites.

Academic programs are subject to change. Students should contact the Academic Affairs Office or the Student Advising and Counseling Center for the most current information.

Associate in Arts

The Associate in Arts degree is designed for transfer to a four-year institution.

The programs leading to the Associate in Arts degree parallel those offered in the freshman and sophomore years at fouryear institutions. Students who satisfactorily complete their chosen programs will be able to continue their college education into their junior and senior years at four-year colleges or universities.

Associate in Applied Science

The Associate in Applied Science degrees are career-related and designed for the student who is planning to enter the workforce upon graduation. Students receive education and training in the skills needed for employment, plus the general education designed to turn out well-rounded  employees. While some credits may transfer to four year institutions, the A.A.S. programs are not designed for transfer. The following A.A.S. programs are designed to equip students with the skills needed for immediate entry into the job market.

Associate in Fine Arts

The Associate in Fine Arts degree is designed for the student who is planning a career in studio arts, photography or design or who plans to transfer to a four year institution or professional art school. The program provides liberal studies required by most B.F.A. programs and sufficient studio courses for junior year status.

Associate in Science

The Associate in Science degree is designed for transfer to a four-year institution.

The programs leading to the Associate in Science degree parallel those offered in the freshman and sophomore years at four year institutions. Students who satisfactorily complete their chosen programs will be able to continue their college education into their junior and senior years at four year colleges or universities.
