Oregon Coast Community College offers an associate degree and career pathway certificates within the Computer Applications and Office Systems Department. Associate degree programs may be completed in approximately two years. State- approved Career Pathway Certificates vary in length but are designed to be completed in less than one year. These certificates help students attain skills for targeted entry-level jobs in specific areas of computer applications, office systems, and web development. The credits earned will provide a convenient pathway for students who wish to continue to pursue the one-year certificates and two-year AAS degrees in the program.
Due to the rapid changes in employment opportunities, technological advances, and certifying agency regulations, these programs are subject to change.
