The 15 Industry Sectors
There are fifteen industry sectors (clusters) with multiple career pathways in each. Career pathways may lead to certificates, associate degrees or transfer degrees which allow students to go on to a four year college to complete a bachelor's degree.
High School Students
What is a program of study?
A program of study shows the classes you need to take in a career pathway to complete high school and a certificate or an associate's degree showing both the career pathway classes and the general education classes you will need. Some programs of study may include articulated classes.
What is High School Articulation?
Articulation helps students make a smooth transition from high school to community college by giving them dual credit for certain classes where there is content duplication. When a specific higher-level career pathway class in high school has similar content to an introductory college career pathway class, faculty can put an articulation agreement in place. Articulation agreements help high school students earn college credit and avoid duplicating work, saving them time and money!
Community College students
If you are currently attending community college, you may be trying to figure out which career area is the right one for you. Not all careers require a four year degree. There are many certificate and associate degree programs that take two years or less and that lead to high-demand, high paying careers.
