Associate’s Degree and Certificate Programs

While a growing number of professions will require some postsecondary education, not every job requires a four-year degree. For many Pennsylvanians, an associate degree or industry certificate can provide a strong foundation for success in the workforce.

Industry certificates can be earned in hundreds of programs offered at career and technical education centers across the state. While many institutions award two-year degrees in Pennsylvania, community colleges are a common pathway for students to earn an associate degree or certificate.
