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.
