Programs of Study

Dear Students,

Wallace Community College is authorized to award associate in arts, associate in science, and associate in applied science degrees as well as certificates in career, technical, and occupational programs. These degrees and certificates are obtained by students successfully completing a series of courses called a program of study. The primary objective of Wallace Community College is to meet the needs of students. These needs most often are met by degrees and certificates offered by the College. Programs of study at WCC are divided into three distinct areas in the Instructional Affairs division: Academics, Health Sciences and Career Technical. We invite you to look through our offerings to find your best fit.

Our faculty members are some of the most highly trained educators in postsecondary education. Their commitment to total student development through maximum engagement in the learning process, relevant instruction, and supportive relationships, continues to provide an environment where constant and never-ending improvement virtually guarantees success. The faculty’s commitment statement serves as written documentation to the extraordinarily high standards they have set for themselves. The vision statement for the Instructional Affairs division also provides clear direction, with a focus on the ultimate objective of all our courses and programs of study. As lifelong learners, faculty members set the example for all students to follow.

As Dean of Instructional Affairs, I welcome you to the training grounds for student success, Wallace Community College. The empowerment you will experience as a student at Wallace Community College will allow you to push well beyond any self-perceived limitations you may have, and with a confidence reserved only for those willing to extend past his or her comfort zone. Backed by an extensive array of student support services, WCC is committed to doing whatever it takes to assist you in achieving your goals! Although your personal student success is our mission, we fully realize the power of generational success, that success that is multiplied through others because of the inspiration they receive from your efforts.

"The best way to get more than the average person has is to be willing to do more than the average person is willing to do!"

To parents, employers, and taxpayers of Alabama,

“We do not educate because it is easy, we do it because it must be done! We have chosen not to just teach academics or technical skills, but to take on the challenge of developing the total 21st century student. Thank you for entrusting us with this enormous responsibility and be confident that after 15 weeks we will return to you a student who is better able to think for himself or herself, more confident in their abilities, and who understands the concept of a lifelong learner committed to constant and never-ending improvement. Give us another semester, and we will build upon the educational foundations of the previous term, producing a student who understands the principles of intellectual integrity, personal responsibility, the dignity of work, and the value of education. By the time their degrees are earned, these students will understand the role they play as productive members of the workforce and in improving the quality of life for their families, their communities, and the state. Most of all, they will remember the ones who empowered them to achieve that which they may have thought impossible at times … the faculty and staff at Wallace Community College!!”
