Frequently Asked Questions

Can students who major in Marketing transfer to a four-year college or university?

Articulation agreements with public and private institutions offer students who earn the A.A.S. degree the opportunity to transfer all of their coursework to the four-year institution. Students in specialized programs, or who earn an A.A.S. degree should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

What will students learn by studying Marketing?

They acquire a firm base of knowledge of business law and mathematics, accounting, computer applications, and economics. Students also study courses in general education and specific courses in marketing. Note: Not all MKT courses are offered every semester both day and evening.

Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
