Career & Technical Programs

Not all professions require a bachelor’s degree. Instead, career and technical programs prepare you for a competitive job market.

Hinds offers over 70 career and technical program options that give you hands-on training in specific professions.

These programs are 1 – 2 years in length and may result in an Associate of Applied Science Degree, Technical or Career Certificate.

Career Ready

After completing a career or technical program, you are ready for the workforce! You do not have to continue to a university to complete a bachelor's degree, but that is always an option.
