A significant portion of the student population served by Wytheville Community College is comprised of part-time evening students. Many of these individuals need and desire post-secondary continuing education programs of study that are of less than conventional one- or two-year duration. Such students have specific occupational, industrial, and/or professional goals that can best be realized through short-term programs.
The options included within the Career Studies program represent a variety of career and academic pursuits. Each may be viewed as a mini-curriculum which is part of a broader range of educational possibilities within a given career field.
Admission to the Career Studies Certificate program is based upon the general requirements for admission to the college.

Students must pass first dynamic session in dental assisting with a grade of "C" or better in order to progress to second dynamic session.
