Degree Descriptions

Southwestern offers many kinds of programs to serve your needs!

Career Pathways allow students to gain skills and build toward a degree or certificate program in stages.

Certificates of Completion provide a more in-depth experience in a discipline or field.  Often Career Pathways are steps toward Certificates of Completion.

Full degree programs provide students with a well-rounded background to pursue advanced industry and professional training or to transfer to a four-year institution.  In some cases, students can earn certificates along the way to their degrees.  In other cases, a Southwestern degree is articulated with specific four-year universities.
