Programs of Study

A program of study is a structured sequence of academic and career and technical education courses that lead to a postsecondary – level credential (United States Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education, 2010).

Programs of Study (POS), at a minimum:

  • Incorporate and align secondary and postsecondary education elements
  • Include academic and CTE content in a coordinated, non-duplicative progression of courses
  • Offer the opportunity, where appropriate, for secondary students to acquire postsecondary credits (Dual-credit)
  • Lead to an industry-recognized credential or certificate at the postsecondary level, or an associate or baccalaureate degree
