Depending on your career goals, educational level, college budget, and personal responsibilities, a community college or career school may be suiting your needs even better than any 4-year college would do.
If you’re not sure in what way these types of schools differ, read on, and you’ll understand. A community college (also referred to as junior college, city college, or technical college) is typically offering 2-year college degree courses and programs in some majors. On top of these 2-year degrees (called associate’s degrees), some community colleges are also offering vocational training and professional certificates.
Community Colleges are offering their students usually lots of flexibility, both when it comes to the choice of majors and whether you want to attend a part-time, full-time, evening, or weekend program.
