Types of Degrees & Certificates

Associate of Arts (A.A.) Degree

The A.A. degree is the equivalent to the first two years at a university. Although at about half the cost, it’s a much more affordable way to start out. You’ll also be able to complete all your core curriculum requirements which transfer to any state university in Texas. Once you’re finished at BC, you’ll be prepared to transfer to a four-year university.

Associate of Science (A.S.) Degree

An A.S. degree is designed for students who are wanting to pursue a math or science oriented bachelor degree. Looking for a reason to choose BC? Not only do we offer the same quality education as a university, but you’ll also earn your degree at a price you can afford.

Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree

An Associate of Applied Science is a two-year degree plan designed for students wanting to jump into a high-skill, high-wage job immediately after graduation. Whether you’re looking to be an EMT responding to accident scenes or working in petrochemical facilities ensuring the plant is running efficiently and safe, we’re committed to preparing you for your future.

Bachelor of Applied Technology (B.A.T.) Degree

The bachelor’s degree is an upper-level degree that offers students an opportunity to continue their education beyond the associate’s level. A Bachelor of Applied Technology degree prepares you to enter an advanced position within a specialized career field. Bachelor’s degrees require about four years of study (including time spent earning the associate degree).
