These programs provide day and evening educational opportunities at the two-year associate degree level. Associate degree programs at BTC are developed to assist those preparing for, or advancing in, an occupation. The degree is awarded for successful completion of a program primarily intended for employment. About 30% of the course work is in general education; the remaining 70% is in technical studies.
The general education courses and some occupational credits earned in associate degree programs may transfer to a two- or four-year institution of higher education. Students interested in transferring credits should review BTC’s current transfer agreements (http://www.blackhawk.edu/Portals/0/pdf/Program%20Brochures/BTCWebsiteTransferAgreements.pdf)
