What is the program about?

The Associate of Technical Study (ATS) degree is open to any student whose technical degree goals cannot be accomplished through enrollment in one of Sinclair’s existing technical degree programs. The student may design a degree which combines two or more technical areas into a unique education plan. As an alternative, part of the student’s degree requirements may incorporate credit awarded through articulation agreements with community education providers, or a combination of both. In all cases, faculty members assist the student in planning the most appropriate course of study for the individual. Note: This program requires an approved ATS application. Please contact to complete the process. When applying for admission to Sinclair, select the Associate of Arts (LA.S.AA) degree. Upon your ATS application being approved, you will be moved into this program of study.
