Associate in Science (AS) Administrative Assistant

Contra Costa College

Common sense and a positive attitude may be an administrative assistant’s keys to success, but experience and training usually open the doors.

No matter what your current situation is, we’ve got you.

If you’re just starting out and want to get to work soon, our short term certificates and Business Information Worker program can have you ready for entry-level office jobs in a year or less.

We also have two-year programs and associate degrees for people who want to enter the workforce with more competitive qualifications, or continue on to a four-year university.

It’s okay if you don’t have any experience or training. You can learn how to type, write business letters, proofread, organize files—even how to use email and the internet—by doing it all hands-on at CCC. As you do, you’ll become proficient and confident using industry standard software like Word, Excel and Outlook. We can even help you look for jobs, write a resume and prepare for interviews.

And if you’re already an experienced office professional, you can always come upgrade your resume with new skills.

We are with you all the way.

So, why not check out the program, see if we can help you pay for school or even get the ball rolling and apply now?

An Associate in Science Degree may be earned by completing a minimum of 60 units of degree credit coursework, including the major requirements and breadth requirements, with a minimum grade point average of 2.0. Students must complete all courses for the major with a grade of C or better.
