This associate in applied science degree requires fewer general education classes than the associate in science degree.
All of the classes—both the construction supervision classes and the general education classes—are entirely online. They provide the ultimate in convenience, since you never have to set foot on campus.
This is a high demand, high skill and high wage program as defined by the Michigan Community College Network.
