Degree Programs[edit]

Baccalaureate Transfer Programs[edit]

Students interested in obtaining a Bachelor's degree can begin working on their educational goals at Eastern by completing a transfer program. These programs are designed as university parallel programs with flexibility to customize the curriculum to meet the requirements of the baccalaureate institution. Students successfully completing the requirements of these programs are awarded the Associate in Arts Degree (A.A.) or Associate in Science Degree (A.S.). Course objectives are designed to enable students to transfer credits. (See: WV Core Coursework Agreement: Series 17.)

Career Technical Programs[edit]

Leading to the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, Eastern's career-technical programs prepare graduates to meet regional employment needs for a technically skilled workforce. These programs include a technical core of courses emphasizing the skills required for direct entry into the job market as well as a core of general education courses. This is an appropriate educational option for students interested in immediate entry into the professional world. Students successfully completing a two-year program are awarded the Associate in Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.). Students completing programs of less than two years duration are awarded a Certificate of Proficiency (C.P). Programs are planned for completion in a specific period of time if students follow the recommended course sequence. Many of the specialized vocational courses include clinical, laboratory, internship and field work experiences which may take place at other facilities in the community. While the A.A.S. is intended to be a terminal degree, many (but not all) of the credits may be transferred to a baccalaureate degree.
