Individual Studies (Certificate)

Create your career-ready skill set at JCC

The Individual Studies certificate at Jamestown Community College prepares you to enter the workforce after graduation and pursue careers based on your interests, experiences, and career goals.

If you’re undecided about your career path, or you’re looking for a program that JCC doesn’t offer, you can customize your curriculum around a specific area and skill set. You’ll work with your advisor to connect your interests and goals with possible careers.
