Careers and Academic Communities (CAC) are a collection of degree or certificate programs that lead to related occupations, courses, or have similar learning objectives. These “communities” may be called different things at different colleges (i.e., “Area of Interest” at ARC, “Meta-Majors” at FLC). The CAC are designed to help you find a program of study that aligns with your educational and career goals.
The goals of CAC are:
- To assist you in determining a particular major by exploring the related programs in an interest area (CAC).
- To learn about the career options for a particular major and thereby help you select a major/program.
- To provide you the structured support services specific to a CAC.
- To allow for career exploration within a CAC.
- To minimize unnecessary units if you are undeclared (“undecided”) but have an expressed interest or skill.
- To connect you to a community at CRC.
- To help you navigate the college, CRC website and catalog in a more meaningful way.
- To orient you to the programs we offer that may be within the same interest area.
