  Interdisciplinary Studies Degree
The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (AIS) allows customization of the program of study based on each student's academic and professional goals. The AIS requires completion of 61 semester credit hours (21 hours of general education requirements and 40 hours distributed among one or more areas of emphasis). Areas of concentration include education, public safety, business and computer/information technology, industrial/engineering technology, and health sciences. The program curriculum may be strategically selected to build upon the student's goals and objectives. Learning opportunities develop academic and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition or continued education. A student might choose an interdisciplinary studies program if his or her specific goals and interests cannot be met through a school's existing majors, minors, and electives.

Technical Specialist (General Studies) Certificate

Enrolling in the Technical Specialist Certificate is a great way to begin your college career. This certificate provides classes in areas including English, math, humanities, science, psychology, and speech, which are easily transferable to any University System College or University. No matter what program of study you decide to pursue, all programs begin with these general education core courses; therefore, if you are currently unsure what career path you want to follow, you can enroll in this certificate and make progress toward your future degree without having to decide right away about your major.

Students who enroll in the Technical Specialist Certificate will benefit from Lanier Technical College’s small classes with more individualized support, and best of all, they can get their general education core credits at a much lower tuition than at a University System College or University. This certificate is also eligible for the HOPE Grant, which does not have a GPA requirement. If your high school grades were not quite up to HOPE Scholarship requirements, you can take your general education courses at Lanier Technical College and receive the HOPE Grant to help further defray the cost of an already affordable tuition. It’s a win-win situation: You get general education course credits that transfer to any USG College or University, and you save your hard-earned money.
