Associate of Science Degree
Articulated with Oregon State University
The Art & Design option studies renewable materials on an aesthetic level, whether as interior designers, fine artists, or entrepreneurs. Students will develop a knowledge of renewable materials and how those materials can function visually within the human space. In addition to the aesthetic aspect, students will gain an understanding of green building materials and green architecture.
Wood is a renewable resource that is used to make many products that our society uses every day. Oregon is a leader in the manufacturing and utilization of wood products. There are exciting new technological advances in wood manufacturing that are rapidly expanding the opportunities to utilize wood as a building material. There is a strong job demand for these skills, and there are many scholarship opportunities for students and job opportunities for graduates with this degree.

The freshman and sophomore years at most universities are designated pre-engineering, with the junior and senior years designated professional engineering. Many of the transfer courses during the first two years of study are math, science and elective courses. At UCC, you can take the required core courses in smaller classroom settings and at lower cost than at four-year institutions. The Associate of Science (AS) degree is awarded once all required courses, electives and general education requirements are successfully completed.
Prospective students should visit Advising and Career Services to get started and then see a program advisor (below) to develop a more focused educational plan.
