Associate of Science Degrees

The technology explosion has created the need for highly trained and educated paraprofessionals and technicians. In a service economy reliant on technology and information management, a wealth of opportunity exists for persons who have more than a high school education but less than a Baccalaureate Degree.

The Associate of Science Degree Program at Interactive College of Technology is intended to meet this unique need for workers who know not only how to perform occupational or technical tasks but how to communicate effectively, think critically, work cooperatively in a team environment and to use technology to meet the demands of employers and customers.

The Associate of Science Degree Program requires the completion of a minimum of 60 semester hours and may be completed in a minimum of four semesters depending on the student’s academic load per semester. In each program a minimum of 18 credits in general education courses is required. The remaining credits are composed of major and major‑related courses.

The general education component of the degree programs consists of 18 hours of an academic core designed to assist the development of the knowledge and skills necessary for graduates to enter, prosper, and advance in their chosen occupations as well as to function more effectively in other areas of their lives.

General education class offerings prepare students to:

    • Improve their writing, speaking, and listening skills.
    • Solve problems through logical reasoning and analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
    • Understand and use quantification and scientific knowledge and methods to solve problems.
    • Increase their understanding and appreciation of themselves and others and enhance their interpersonal communication skills.
    • Improve their ability to learn how to learn and to strengthen their commitment to lifelong learning.
    • Better comprehend the world in which they live so that they can function more effectively in it.

Each program offers students both requirements and recommended electives from the general education core. Students must earn a total of 18 semester credit hours in general education, including a minimum of three semester credit hours from each of the following four areas:

    • Humanities
    • Natural Sciences
    • Behavioral Sciences
    • Mathematics

Courses designated as a requirement in one area may not be taken to fulfill a requirement in a different area. A minimum of fifty percent of the required credits must be completed in residence to gain the credential.

As with all programs of study at ICT, each Associate of Science degree program includes an externship with a partnering company near the campus for 135 hours. Our Career Placement Assistance office works with each student to find the organization that is the best fit for them. This gives the student the opportunity to put their new skills to use and gain real-life career training. The externship must be completed for graduation.
