Customized Degree Programs



Customized degree programs are closed enrollment programs providing students with individualized or cooperatively sponsored learning opportunities to meet educational goals. Cooperatively sponsored programs are developed in conjunction with approved apprenticeship or training programs; and the course of study is determined by agreements between Eastern and training sponsors. Mandatory components in these programs include general education and classroom instruction in the occupational area. On-the-job training may also be awarded college credit under agreements negotiated by the parties.

Students interested in customized degree programs should contact their academic advisor for details.

Upon completion of these programs, graduates will be able to:

  • Effectively use both written and verbal communication in the workplace
  • Demonstrate an understanding of technical skills required in the specific occupational area through the successful completion of an approved apprenticeship or training program
