Students who value lifelong learning may also be attracted to the degree program. The program focus is skill building in the areas of keyboarding, word processing, office communications, and office procedures. Courses in business management, computer courses, and a broad background in liberal arts will add to the student's ability to develop decision-making skills. The ability to solve problems will be stressed throughout the program. Upon completion of the degree program, students will be able to enter the workplace or transfer credits to a four-year institution.
