Applied Science Degree and Certificate Plans


Associate of Applied Science (AAS)

Lee College offers Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees in 24 technical areas. AAS degrees require 60 college credits, or the equivalent of two full years of college work. The curriculum for AAS degrees includes coursework in a technical area as well as a core curriculum which includes courses in Communication, Mathematics, Life and Physical Sciences, Creative Arts, Language Philosophy, Government/Political Sciences, American History, Social/Behavioral Sciences, Communication and Kinesiology Area Option.

Certificates of Completion

Lee College offers 55 Certificates of Completion. These programs are designed for students who are employed or plan to be employed in technical fields.

In most cases, the credits earned in a certificate program can be applied to an associate of applied science degree in the same area of study; however, there are programs in which this is not the case. In a few cases, the credits earned in certificate programs are transferable to associate of science degrees.

Students who are considering a certificate program as a first step in the process of earning an associate or baccalaureate degree should discuss their plans with a counselor.
