Academics & Training
Mt. San Antonio College is proud to offer more than 240 different academic and training programs for our students. No matter what career you want to pursue, four-year university you want to transfer to, or skill you want to learn, Mt. SAC has a program for you. Browse the links below to explore the programs that are right for you.
Students can save almost half the cost of their education by beginning their education at Mt. SAC and then transferring to a four-year university. Students can earn an associate degree or transfer without a degree by taking general education classes. In addition, Mt. SAC has partnered with several universities to provide accelerated bachelor's degrees (often with reduced tuition). Classes are conveniently held online or at Mt. SAC.
Some of our students choose to earn their associate degrees to prepare for a career, and others earn a degree to prepare for transfer to a four-year university. With more than 90 degree programs to choose from, you will find the right degree program for your goals.
Certificates and Career Education
Certificates can be a great option for students who want career training to advance in their current job or learn a new trade. Some of our most popular certificate programs are Engineering Technology, Industrial Design Engineering, Consumer Relations, Business Management, Welding, Fire Technology, Law Enforcement, and Programming.
For students who want to learn a new trade or upgrade their skills, but do not want or need college credit for their courses, we offer more than 55 noncredit vocational programs to prepare students for careers. These programs include fee-based and no-cost courses in health careers, accounting, welding, photography, medical training, manufacturing, and more. Learn about all of our noncredit vocational programs at the links below.
Adult Education (under Adult and Continuing Education)
Mt. SAC offers quality programs and services to meet the needs of all students. We have no-cost programs to help students of all ages build pathways toward career and college goals. Students can earn a high school diploma or equivalency, prepare for the military exam, gain computer skills, learn English, and strengthen self-sufficiency. Services such as counseling and career development support student success.
