Business Management (AAS-T)

This degree is built upon the technical courses required for job preparation, but also includes a college-level general education component. This is consistent with the dual purpose of transfer and preparation for direct employment.

AAS-T degrees are NOT DIRECT TRANSFER degrees.  These are workforce degrees that contain a core of at least twenty (20) transferable general education courses including English composition (5 credits); quantitative reasoning (5 credits); and social science, humanities or science (10 credits).  Many AAS-T degrees will have significantly more than the minimum 20 credits of general education.  


Prerequisite requirements must be fulfilled prior to enrollment in most required program courses. Prerequisite requirements are listed together with titles and descriptions of required program courses in the Grays Harbor College General Catalog.
