Our Programs


Middlesex Community College currently offers more than 75 associate degree and certificate programs.

  • Associate Degree – is the academic credential certifying the recipient has met specified standards for graduation (the number of course credits and completion of required courses with satisfactory grades). The associate degree is generally equivalent to the first four semesters of a bachelor’s degree program. Many associate degree programs are designed to prepare students for transfer to schools that offer bachelor’s degree programs.
     
  • Associate in Arts (AA) – is the degree given to students in Liberal Arts & Sciences programs, which are designed for transfer to the bachelor’s-degree level.
     
  • Associate in Science (AS) – is the degree given to students in all other programs, designed primarily as career preparation, although AS programs frequently provide transfer options.
     
  • Certificate – is a document issued for completion of a specified program, usually dedicated to occupational, career or professional studies. There are wide variations in the length, content and purpose of certificate programs. Credit and noncredit certificate programs range from basic to post-graduate academic levels.

At Middlesex, we have specialists in reading, writing, math and other subject areas dedicated to helping students adjust to college-level coursework. Students needing such developmental education are encouraged to address those requirements as early as possible in their major program of study.
