Our Academics

Piedmont Community College offers a wide variety of curriculum programs designed to prepare students for the workforce or transfer to a four year college or university. The College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award associate degrees, diplomas and certificates. Students can chose programs that lead to an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.), Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Fine Arts - Visual Arts (A.F.A.), Associate in General Education (A.G.E.) or Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees.

Curriculum programs at PCC are part of the Instruction and Student Development division. Programs are grouped in the following areas, each area headed by an academic dean:


Each curriculum program is assisted by a program advisory committee, comprised of individuals working in that field. Program advisory committees appraise the College of changes in the field, and assist faculty in keeping each curriculum program current. Most curriculum programs also have a clinical, internship, or workforce component that provides students with real world experience.

Individuals interested in entering the workforce often choose to enroll in diploma and certificate programs. These programs focus on competencies needed to succeed in the workforce and can be completed in one or two semesters.
