Programs of Study
Pulaski Technical College offers credit classes and programs designed for university transfer and career preparation. Students may choose programs and courses that will transfer later to a four-year college or university or pursue a program of technical/occupational education to prepare them to directly enter the job market after just one or two years.
Pulaski Technical College offers the Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts in Teaching and Associate of Science degrees, which are designed to parallel the first two years of course work at a four-year college or university. After studying at Pulaski Tech, students can then transfer to a four-year college or university for the final two years of a baccalaureate degree.
