University Transfer: Western Texas College (WTC) has many degrees that transfer to Texas senior institutions. Pre-professional and general education courses are offered leading to the Associate of Arts degree.
Career Programs: WTC technical-vocational programs lead to a certificate or the Associate of Applied Science degree, preparing students for careers in the business, industrial and professional communities. Programs that can be completed in one to two years include:
- golf and landscape technology – most graduates enter the golf course industry as an assistant golf course superintendent or an irrigation or pesticide technician. Associate degree graduates can also enter into the landscape and irrigation industry, parks and recreation or sales of horticultural products or turf and landscape equipment.
- radio broadcasting – Western Texas College’s FCC-licensed FM radio station, 91.1 KGWB, lets students work with state-of-the-art equipment as they produce announcements and programs, prepare news and sportscasts, broadcast WTC sporting events and learn the inner workings of a radio station. Upon graduation, they can step into a career in radio or apply their skills in related industries, such as production companies, advertising agencies, industry and broadcasting trade associations, educational radio and television and state and federal government.
