In 1929, Amarillo College was founded as a junior college, independent of the local school district. By 1937, the college established its permanent campus on the Washington Street Campus in Amarillo, Texas. Through the twentieth century, curriculum expanded, adding vocational and allied health and occupational-technical programs. In addition, the college extended the physical campus to incorporate added locations including the West Campus, East Campus, Polk Street Campus, Moore County Campus, and the Hereford Campus.
Amarillo College awards Associate’s degrees and certificates, along with sponsoring career and technical education, continuing education, dual-credit coursework, personal enrichment classes, and distance learning. In addition to professional or technical degree programs, students can pursue an Associate’s degree in General Education, gaining a broader background that is especially useful for transfer into four-year institutions. The Continuing Education division sponsors professional and occupational classes and seminars that further enhances the skill sets of working professionals. Furthermore, personal enrichment programs support learning for both children and adults, and dual-credit allows high school students to earn college credits.
