TVCC Career Pathways

Career pathways help guide students toward a specific profession by providing a defined list of courses offering expert training. The various courses lead students to complete certificates and/or degrees qualifing the students to work in a particular field. Each pathway program at TVCC provides a "roadmap" of study showing the courses or degree requirements that will lead students to their desired education and employment goals.

Career pathways can be used by students recently graduated from high school OR by adults who have been out of school for quite some time. In either case, career pathway students need to have the desire to help themselves and the desire to explore the possibilities of a new profession.
