Make Your Degree Count

LDSBC offers three streamlined degrees:  Associate of Science (AS), Associate of Applied Science (AAS), and Certificates. Whether your priority is getting the skills for a good job so you can transfer and continue your education, or building a comprehensive skill set to start your career immediately, we have a solution to get you there. Learn more about your choices below.

Associates of Science (AS) Degree

A skills-based, transferable degree to qualify you for a good job while continuing toward a bachelor's. You’ll start by choosing one or two certificates, combined with general education courses, to create your AS degree.

See AS Details

Associates of Applied Science (AAS) Degree

Choose from four skills-based, non-transferable degrees with set curriculums (no certificates). These AAS degrees are designed to prepare you for an entry-level position in that specific field, with no further education required to succeed.

Already have a 2- or 4- year degree, but you’re looking to move up in your career or break into a new field? You can complete a stand-alone certificate in as little as two semesters. It’s the fastest route to gaining the in-demand skills employers want.
