The program will provide a variety of educational experiences and career opportunities. The program offers students a choice of general education core and electives. It is important for the student to use care in course selection. If the primary goal is to transfer, the student must learn in advance of the particular requirements of the intended university. If the primary goal involves occupational skills or personal growth, the student should consult with an LCC advisor before selecting courses.
