Programs

OCCC’s diverse major options offer students the choice to transfer to a four-year institution or immediately enter the workforce upon completion of their OCCC degree. There are also program opportunities that help students advance in their current careers. 

Associate in Arts degree (AA) or Associate in Science degree (AS)
Most often used to transfer to another college or university, with community college credits going toward a bachelor of arts degree or a bachelor of science degree.
Associate in Applied Science degree (AAS)
Most often used to go directly into the job market.

Emphasis
Some majors have options for specialized study. For example, Chemistry majors can specialize their study in one of four different areas. The major will still be chemistry, but they will complete an emphasis in a specific area. The italicized text shows the different areas you can complete specialized study.
