Applied Sciences Programs of Study

One of the primary missions of Lincoln Land Community College is to provide residents of the college district the opportunity for education in vocational and technical fields. The career programs that follow are designed to qualify persons for immediate employment as highly skilled workers and technicians.

In a dynamic approach to applied sciences education, the college maintains an advisory committee for each of the applied sciences programs. The committees, whose members include specialists from business and industry, lay persons, and representatives of the college, help LLCC keep in touch with the district’s employment needs.

Recommendations for new career programs, new courses and new approaches to training are within the realm of the committees’ assistance to the college. The results are up-to-date training programs in vocational and technical skills and graduates who are highly qualified to meet employer expectations.

Within these curricula are courses that can be taken individually to upgrade vocational and technical skills. In addition to the two-year degree programs, one-year programs are offered and lead to certificates of achievement. Certificates of completion are awarded for completion of a program of less than a year’s duration. In that category are workshops and seminars, which can be provided by the college at the request of residents in the district.

Qualified students receiving occupational instruction through LLCC have opportunities for academic assistance to enhance student success. These services may include assessment of needs, tutoring, note-taking, taped textbooks, and career transitions.
