- The programs of study offered by Atlanta Metropolitan College are of 2 major types: college transfer programs, and career programs. Transfer programs are designed for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges or universities upon the completion of two years of course work at the college. Transfer programs of study provide the freshman and sophomore years of academic coursework required for a bachelor's degree. Transfer programs lead to the Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees. Career programs are designed for students who wish to complete a college program which will prepare them to enter employment at a level of competence requiring more than high school education, but less than a four-year college or university degree. Students who complete a career program receive the Associate of Applied Science degree. Students in certificate programs earn certificates. Students receive intensive tutorial support and have access to technology labs. The technology labs are equipped with software for electronic tutorials, Internet resources, word processing, multimedia software and support software relevant to each academic discipline.
