Pathways to Careers Program

Pathways to Careers is designed to give a cohort of CMC students the opportunity to experience college through a different lens.

Pathways to Careers is a student-centered program intended to guide students to the best educational pathway to achieve their future career goals. Students will have the opportunity to explore career interest areas and the skills needed to work in each, while taking classes at Clackamas Community College. Students will set career goals and strive to complete a certificate program or an associate degree. CCC offers more than 60 certificate programs that represent some of the most in-demand career fields and are designed to get students job-ready in two years or less. Examples of careers include web design, computer support, welding, medical assistant, automotive repair, and retail management.
