Community Colleges and Vocational Training SchoolsCommunity college typically refers to a public school that functions as either a career vocational training school or as a way for local students to complete an associate's degree or to earn a significant amount of college credits before transferring to a four-year university.
Community college schools will usually offer a variety of short training programs designed to provide students with the essential skills and knowledge they need to enter starting positions in their chosen field. These technical or vocational programs are usually completed in under two years. These types of programs are often in the skilled trade professions, but they can also be in the areas of business, healthcare, graphic arts and many other quickly growing fields. Many programs award associate's degrees to graduates.
A two-year school is also an affordable way for students to take general studies, liberal arts and other entry-level junior college courses and earn credits that can then be carried with them as they transfer to a four-year university.
Besides these two-year public colleges, there are also many good private schools that offer similar classes and degrees, most of which can also be earned in under two years.
