Introducing a new way to select a major.

AACC has something for everyone, but with so many degrees and certificates available, our list of majors can seem daunting to the first-time student. If you're a new student and you're having trouble finding a major that fits your interests and goals, consider Explore.

Starting with the fall 2018 term, new students will be able to "explore" their options within one of our 11 Fields of Interest. With Explore, you take numerous courses common to a particular field, and an Explore course which provides more in-depth exposure to the various disciplines within that field. Once you have completed these courses, you're prepared to make a better, more informed decision about your major — and your future.

Not everyone applies to college with a firm goal in mind, or even an idea of which path to take. In many ways, that’s why we’re here. Our academic advisors, career advisors and faculty are committed to helping you determine the best route for you. This new approach is one more way that AACC can help you begin your college journey, and redefine yourself for a bright future.
