Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.)
Much of the way we do business has evolved over the past decade, our students are finding that more and more of the requirements from their prospective employers are becoming "click and order" management versus "brick and mortar" management. As Finger Lakes Community College prepares students for this paradigm, the e-Commerce degree offers students an opportunity to learn in the way they will be doing business - online.
The A.A.S. degree in e-Commerce will be offered fully-online or as a combination of online and traditional face-to-face courses. The program is designed to provide students with a balanced background in business and web-based application development and to give students experience in professional online collaboration and communication. This program will challenge students as they evolve into the business and computer commerce professionals of tomorrow.
The program's online courses are offered through the award-winning SUNY Learning Network (SLN). Online coursework will be completed through online forums with instructors and fellow students. Students completing the degree program entirely online will be able to access all administrative services either online or by phone, including application processing, course registration, payment, advisement, technical support, purchase of books and supplies, and library services and materials.
Honors Courses: The College offers honors courses that provide enhanced educational experiences for students who have demonstrated outstanding academic ability. Enrollment in honors courses is open to qualified students in this degree program, as well as all other qualified FLCC students. Successful completion of honors courses or an Honors Certificate may increase student transfer options to four-year institutions.
Graduates of the e-Commerce degree program can expect to find entry level positions in the fields of Internet marketing, Web advertising, Web application development, e-Commerce sales, e-Commerce consulting, and e-Commerce Web administration.
The Computing Sciences faculty bring to FLCC a wide breadth of talent and a great depth of experience. Each faculty member specializes in a particular area of the discipline, and continually strives to stay current in that area. We are committed to providing students with the most up-to-date programs and courses, and strive to provide our students with excellent education.
