Associate of Arts in Teaching
The Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree was created by Missouri four-year colleges and community colleges and provides students who have earned an AAT degree at SFCC the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree in education at a Missouri four-year college or university. Earning an AAT at SFCC makes the transition to four-year universities a smooth process and is very economical.
Associate of Fine Arts
The Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degree provides concentrated study in art, music or theatre and a foundation for upper-level class work leading to a bachelor's degree.
Associate of Science in Chemistry or Engineering
An Associate of Science in Chemistry (ASC) or Engineering (ASE) is now offered at SFCC. These are the only AS degree programs offered within the college's 14-county service area. These programs provide students with the first two years of study toward bachelor's degrees in either chemistry or engineering.
At SFCC, we offer several one-year professional certificates designed to get you into the work force quickly. Most certificates can be applied toward the associate of applied science degree if you decide to continue after completion of a certificate program.
Some of the programs offered at SFCC now include Skills Certificates for students interested in attaining a set of specialized skills that could lead to quick employment. The number of credit hours required can range from 15 to 18 because courses are limited to a specific set of skills. Besides the ability to enter the workforce quickly, a Skills Certificate is also a great entry point that can lead to a Professional Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science degree.
