programs of study

A program of study is a set of aligned programs and curricula that begin at the high school level and continue through college and university certificate, diploma and degree programs. Essentially, a program of study is an academic and career plan. 

Programs of study:

  • Incorporate and align secondary and postsecondary education elements
  • Include academic and CTE content in a coordinated, nonduplicative progression of courses
  • Offer the opportunity, where appropriate, for secondary students to acquire postsecondary credits
  • Lead to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the postsecondary level, or an associate or baccalaureate degree
