Technical Occupational Education Philosophy

 

 

The technical and occupational programs at Seminole State College are designed to prepare people to enter the workforce in a variety of specialty areas that meet needs of the student, community, and the State of Oklahoma. Curriculum is provided essential to train competent, employable people for careers in nursing, medical laboratory technology, business, and a number of health-related or technology related technical occupations.  The degree programs combine general education, support, related, and specialty courses into an integrated curriculum. The College strives to develop students into life-long learners who have the capacity to adapt to an evolving, global workplace.

 

Students who successfully complete program requirements earn an Associate in Applied Science degree. The Associate in Applied Science Degree is intended for the student who plans to enter the workforce immediately upon graduation in one of the specialty areas in which the degree is awarded. Additionally, a growing number of higher learning institutions have developed degree programs recognizing this degree for transfer of credits into upper-division programs leading to a baccalaureate degree.

 

Cooperative Alliance Agreements

 

The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technical Education are working together to develop policies enabling higher education institutions and technology centers to form partnerships benefiting students. These policies have allowed Seminole State College to negotiate Cooperative Alliance Agreements with area technology centers. 

 

Seminole State College and Gordon Cooper Technology Center are primary partners in a Cooperative Alliance Agreement. Also, Seminole State College is a secondary partner with Wes Watkins Technology Center through a Cooperative Alliance Agreement with Oklahoma State University Technology Branch-Okmulgee.

 

These agreements permit adult students and qualifying high students to enroll in an approved program and receive college credit in technology courses in addition to completing required general education courses leading toward an Associate in Applied Science Degree. Under this arrangement, while Alliance partners jointly deliver technical degree programs, the college credit and degree is offered and awarded by Seminole State College.

 

NOTE: Students may complete the program by attending SSC & the area Technology Center specified in the following options listing.  Students may complete the program by attending both institutions simultaneously.
