Skills include time manage­ment, human/customer relations, administrative management, information management, oral and written communications, word processing, spread­sheets, presentations, document formatting, and Internet research.

A wide variety of job opportunities are avail­able to program graduates in many types of offices.

Skilled administrative profession­als are expected to be in demand in several industries, including education, manufacturing, construction, financial services, employment services, health care and social assistance, local government, and energy production.

The Administrative Services Associate of Applied Science degrees are awarded for successful completion of 60 credit hours that include a common core of academic courses and a maximum selection of technical courses based upon specialization.

The program offers three degree specializations: administrative, medical of­fice, and office applications. All options offer certificates that build toward the degree.

Medical office specialty only: At some facilities, students may be required to show proof of immunizations such as Hepatitis B, tuberculosis, tetanus, and MMR (mumps, measles, rubella). These costs are incurred by the student.

The general education core will transfer to a variety of colleges and universities, and the degree will transfer in whole to some univer­sities. Through articulation, some students may have earned college credit while in high school. Contact a counselor, division advisor, or faculty member at any college for specific information about articulation and to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.
