Degrees and Specializations

EFSC offers several degrees with multiple specializations or pathways, such as the A.S. and B.A.S. degrees and the A.A. degree with pathways.  Students may receive a specific degree only one time. While students may take courses from multiple specializations, the degree will be awarded only once.

For example, student earns the A.S. in Engineering Technology, with the Advanced Technology Specialization. Student then completes all courses in the Electronics Specialization. Student will not receive the A.S. in Engineering Technology again. However, student could receive a degree in Graphics Technology when all requirements for that degree are met.

The diploma will be posted with the degree name, not the specialization or pathway. The specialization will be noted on the transcript.
