Program Overview

The Associate of Applied Science degree provides students with the applied knowledge, theory and experience needed to pursue employment in specific occupational areas. These degrees may potentially transfer into the academic curriculum at other four-year colleges and universities. Because course requirements vary, it is recommended that students pursuing an AAS discuss goals with a representative from the desired transfer institution. This Office Administration major from Vance-Granville Community College prepares students for careers such as: Office Coordinator, Administrative Coordinator, Executive Assistant and Office Manager.
