General Occupational Technology Degree

The General Occupational Technology curriculum provides individuals with an opportunity to upgrade skills and to earn an associate degree, diploma, and/or certificate by taking courses suited for individual occupational interests and/or needs.

The curriculum content will be customized for students according to occupational interests and needs. A program of study for each student will be selected from any non-developmental level courses offered by the College.

Graduates will become more effective workers, better qualified for advancements within their field of employment, and become qualified for a wide range of entry-level employment opportunities.

Students wishing to major in General Occupational Technology are required to have an approved individualized program of study to enroll in this program. Information may be obtained in the Student Services Division.

NOTE: This program does not meet the standards of the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement with the UNC System and, therefore, is a terminal program and will not transfer to four-year institutions.

All courses must be taken from approved associate of applied science (AAS) degree, diploma, or certificate programs.
