CCV’s most popular program, liberal studies is designed to include breadth and depth of learning, emphasizing exposure to a broad range of subjects and academic disciplines and providing flexibility in individual course selection. Choose the concentration in global studies to become acquainted with the nature and extent of the serious issues that affect the globe and many of its peoples, as well as develop a basic knowledge of diverse cultural practices, values, and differences that will allow you to engage effectively in working relationships with a range of populations. You can begin a liberal studies degree with the 21st century skills credential, which proves to employers that you have the skills to be successful in the workplace. Whatever path you choose, you’ll be well positioned for the workforce or further education. 

CCV programs are stackable, meaning they build on one another as you progress toward your goals. Individual classes can be applied to credentials, credentials to certificates, and certificates to degrees.
