Occupational/Vocational Education

Program Overview

The occupational/vocational education degree is a Bachelor of Science degree. A significant component of the program is its availability to students at off-campus vocational technical school sites located across Massachusetts.

Job relevance and valid, reliable, vocational technical practice is attained through participatory planning and affiliation with industry, vocational technical school practitioners, professional associations and representatives of the University.

The program offers up to 12 credits in recognition of the work experiences of the participating students through the University. Candidates may apply for the trade experience through the Life Experience Credit Assistance program (LECAP) after completing 80 credits in the program.

Courses are offered at various regional vocational high schools. In addition, many of the required courses are also available online.
