Career and Technical Programs: Midland College offers a number of associate degree and certificate programs designed to allow students to go straight to the workplace. These include:

  • Health Sciences – students may complete degrees and/or certificates in nursing, radiography, sonography and emergency medical services. Programs in health information technology and long-term care administration are available online. MC recently added a licensed vocational nurse (LVN) to associate degree in nursing (ADN) transitional program at its site in Fort Stockton.
  • AviationMC is one only a few community colleges in the country that offer both professional pilot training and an aircraft maintenance program.
