Arts and Sciences Degrees Prepare Students for Transfer
Academic Affairs works with CMC faculty to develop, assess and administer Arts & Science degree programs
The Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science degree programs are designed to prepare students to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The Associate of Arts degree program offers a liberal arts education that includes the Colorado State Guaranteed General Education Curriculum. This Curriculum includes a minimum of one year of course work in communications, humanities, social sciences, mathematics and science. Within the Associate of Arts degree program, CMC offers the following designations: Anthropology, Business, Early Childhood Teacher Education, Elementary Teacher Education, Economics, Environmental Studies, History, Outdoor Education, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, French, Spanish, Theatre, and Visual Arts. CMC has many articulation agreements with Colorado universities to assist students in transfer.
The Associate of Science degrees are designed for those who plan to seek a four-year degree in advanced technology, mathematics, or physical, natural or computer science areas. Coursework is much more heavily based on mathematics and the physical and life sciences along with the state general education requirements. Within the Associate of Science degree program, CMC offers the following designations: Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Psychology, Physics and Engineering.
All Associate of General Studies degrees (with the exception of the AGS-generalist degree) are the result of articulation agreements with public baccalaureate degree-granting institutions. They are transferable only in the particular program identified by the articulation agreement. These degree emphasis areas include Criminal Justice, Elementary Education, Engineering, and Outdoor Recreation Leadership.
Career & Technical

Welcome to Career & Technical Education at Colorado Mountain College!
What is "Career & Technical Education?"
Career and Technical Education (CTE) refers to degrees and certificates designed to prepare you for immediate employment opportunities upon graduation in a specific career. Training is hands-on and utilizes state-of-the-art equipment, software and facilities. In addition to having a majority of instructors who maintain occupations within their field of expertise, many of the career and technical education programs also feature internship or work experience components; these factors help to ensure your training focuses on real-world applications. Through collaboration with industry leaders, career and technical education will provide you with the right mix of skills, training and knowledge to make you highly competitive in the job market.
The CTE programs at Colorado Mountain College consist of our Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees, and Certificates of Occupational Proficiency (COP). Many of these degrees have pathways that provide a student the opportunity to also complete a four-year degree.
