Program Description

University Transfer: For students interested in obtaining a four-year degree, Victoria College offers courses that will meet the general education requirements of most bachelor’s degree-granting institutions in Texas.

Career and Technology Programs: Victoria College offers a number of career and technical programs that have been meeting work force and training needs for several years. These programs include commercial truck driving, welding, process technology and nursing.

The college’s process technology program offers an Associate in Applied Science degree and an enhanced skills certificate qualifying graduates for employment in the petrochemical industry as process operators. With the six petrochemical plants in the college’s service area facing retirements and significant expansion, a qualified, well-trained work force will be critical to their ongoing success. The local plants generously helped the college equip a process technology lab that many say is superior to labs found on university campuses. The program employs one full-time faculty member and five adjunct instructors and has graduated 127 students in the past seven years.

Information about Victoria College’s programs at the Allied Health Division and Division of Workforce Development and Education can be found online.
