Because the enrollee in a community college tends to be somewhat different from typical college, university, or trade school students, specialized personnel are needed to ensure that the investments made by students and institutions are maximally and mutually beneficial.
The teaching emphasis program of study will focus mainly upon the major field of specialization with adequate opportunities for breadth of preparation in the specialty area and cognate areas, and a background in research methods. Major fields of specialization are presented under degrees offered in the General Information section of the Bulletin. The administration-emphasis program of study will focus on a combination of generic higher education administration courses and specialized community college courses.
