Maricopa Community Colleges provide several handy tools to explore programs, degrees, and classes. We offer approximately 1,000 occupational programs (degrees and certificates), 37 academic associate degrees, and over 10,000 courses.

There are several search options available to help you determine which degree or certificate plan is best for you.


Click any of the tabs below to access a complete list of options and tips...

  • Custom Search (by keyword, college, or degree/certificate): The most flexible search, allowing you to select by a specific program (major), college, degree, or certificate.

    Area of Interest
    : A wide variety of credit degree and certificates that can help prepare you for a rewarding career.

    By College
    : A list of current degrees and certificates available at each Maricopa Community College (alphabetical by program (major) title). The list includes the Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS), AB (Associate in Business), AA EE (Associate in Arts Elementary Education), AA FA (Associate in Arts Fine Arts), Associate in General Studies (AGS), Certificate of Completion (CCL), Associate in Applied Science (AAS), and may include Academic Certificates (AC).

    By Program Name
     (A-Z listing): Lists all of the Associate in Applied Science Degrees and Certificates of Completion in alphabetical order.

    Please Note: If you are interested in transferring to earn a Bachelor’s degree, you may want to visit MCCCD’s Academic Degree and Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) Policies or check out the Transfer Pathways to review formal transfer programs that the Maricopa Community Colleges have with ASU, NAU, UA, and over thirty other four-year colleges and universities.
    If neither of these options is selected, a paper check will be sent to your mailing address on file in your Online Student Center.

  • Programs may have a different name from your search. For example, "Massage Therapy" may be listed under "Therapeutic Massage," or "Criminal Justice" could be called "Administration of Justice." If you cannot find the program you are looking for, try browsing by program name or use keyword/custom search.

  • If you are not sure of your interests or how these programs relate to employment, visit the Career Services resource page to explore more about your career options.
