Pierce College's professional/technical degrees and certificates are designed to provide students with the technical and related skills needed for successful employment. The degrees and certificates emphasize practical, work-related skills that translate to effectiveness and expertise in the workplace.
What's more, these degrees are hot - and getting hotter. Over the next five years, it is estimated that more than 60 percent of all job openings in Washington state will require more than a high school diploma but less than a four-year degree. Some of the projected fastest growing fields include dental hygiene, nursing, database administration and digital design - and you can train for all of these at Pierce College.
Moreover, some of our professional/technical programs have university transfer tracks, so if you decide to continue your education later, you can pick up where you left off.
