LSC-Kingwood offers a wide array of associate degrees, which are two-year programs, and certificates, some of which require as little as one semester of study.  Both prepare students to enter to the workforce in career fields where employees are in demand.  Each of these career programs are not only led by faculty who have recently worked actively in that field, but are guided by an advisory board of local business owners who make sure the skills students are learning are those sought by employers.

Choose from degrees and certificates in the following areas: Business Management and Leadership, Logistics, Management, Professional Office Technology, Legal Office Technology, Computer Technology,  Networking Computer Programming, Computer Applications, PC Helpdesk, Visual Communication, Computer Gaming, Cosmetology, Facial Specialist, Facilities Management, Interior Design Technology and Health Science Professions -- Dental Hygiene, Medical Office Technology, Medical Transcription, Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, and Respiratory Care.
