At FDTC, you can now earn credits toward an Associate in Arts degree by attending courses offered on Fridays and Saturdays. The courses are taught in a highly effective “blended” or “hybrid” format that includes weekend class meetings that provide interaction with your instructor and other students and online course work that you can fit into your schedule.
Classes are offered on Fridays and Saturdays, with additional instruction online and are completed in 8-week “mini-mesters”. New classes are offered throughout the year. By attending weekend classes, you could complete your Associate in Arts degree in two years or less.
Students in the Associate in Arts degree program take classes in a small classroom environment taught by instructors, not graduate students or teaching assistants. Their first two years of education at a technical college is the same as the first two years at a four-year university, yet costs much less!
The College offers students in the program a variety of learning formats including accelerated, online, web enhanced, and hybrid courses that are transferable or lead to transferable courses to accommodate traditional and non-traditional students. Graduates of the program will have the necessary communication and analytical thinking skills to compete in a professional work environment or compete with university students entering their third year of a Baccalaureate program.
