In today’s fast-paced, multi-tasking world, it can be hard to find time for a lunch break—much less commute to a crowded campus, fighting traffic, all in an attempt to arrive on time and sit down to take a college course.

Fortunately, Charter College has a solution. While earning a degree or certificate and expanding upon current training can benefit a working adult’s career, getting to the classroom chair isn’t always easy. Between work and family, time is a limited luxury. Charter College understands this modern day dilemma, and they are now offering the residents of Canyon Country a solution – convenient online courses designed for rapid results.

In as little as 10 months, students can earn a degree or certificate in four varying career fields: criminal justice, paralegal studies, hospitality, or business administration. For a career protecting and serving, students can choose the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Criminal Justice that prepares graduates for jobs in policing, corrections, the courts, social services, and security.

Interested in the legal field? Students can earn an associates degree online in Paralegal Studies and be prepared to seek entry-level employment in law offices and government agencies. In less than a year, the Hospitality certificate program can help kick-start a career working directly with people in travel and tourism. For those looking to enter the business world, earning a Business Administration certificate on-line will allow students to hone their communication, research, and critical thinking skills while teaching them financial transaction reporting, computerized accounting, office software, and personal and professional development.

Through the Charter College Canyon Country degree completion programs, students with previous training and coursework can earn an associate degree in just five months. For business-minded students with a current certificate or substantial coursework in the field, they can earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Administration through the on-line curriculum.

When it comes to the constantly growing field of healthcare, Charter College students currently holding a healthcare certificate and working in their field (such as medical assisting, dental assisting, or pharmacy technician) can advance their careers by earning an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Allied Health.

In the hands-on field of the construction trades, Charter College students with a certificate or 54 quarter credits hours in a trade like plumbing, HVAC, or electrical, can earn an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Applied Technology, helping to position them for management and supervisory roles. All of these associate degree programs help position working professionals for career advancement and promotion.

Through all of these programs, Charter College offers the ideal mix of in-person campus support along with the freedom and flexibility of a virtual classroom. The Charter College Canyon Country campus offers students the benefit of a variety of resources including in-person tutoring, IT support, access to library and computer materials, job placement assistance for graduates, and loan management.
