Practical Training

To earn the Associate in Science or Associate in Applied Science Degree, certain General Education requirements and courses for the major must be satisfactorily completed. The following programs meet the requirements for the Associate in Science or Associate in Applied Science Degree and include the required and elective courses generally recommended for job preparedness.

In planning a program of study at Indian River State College, the student is urged to consult an Educational Services Advisor/Counselor. The student is advised to review the overall requirements of the degree program before making course selections.

Final responsibility for choice of program and courses selected rests with the student. Please note, the Planned Major required for the IRSC Application for Admission is the five digit number following the Program Title.

An important component of many of the Associate in Science and Associate in Applied Science Degree programs is the practical training experience. This experience is designed to complement and enhance the theoretical program requirements and is closely supervised by IRSC instructors. Specific training activities and assignments are included in course requirements and students in these classes meet at least weekly with instructors to discuss progress, goals, and activities. The credit-hour assignment and grading systems used for these classes is consistent with all other resident college courses. Specific descriptions for these courses are included in the Course Description section of this catalog. Students are encouraged to contact the department chairperson if they have questions regarding any of these classes.
