Module 3: Which path? Schools & Degrees

The objective of Module 3 is to understand higher education options and types of degrees awarded.

Now that you have an idea of what career path you might choose, it’s time to think about which sort of higher education is right for you. There are three main types of schools to consider:

  • Vocational Schools
  • Community Colleges
  • Universities

Based on your research in the last module, you should already know what sort of school you need to go to for training for that career. If you’re still wondering about the differences between the three main types of schools, the information we’re going to go over now should help clear up your questions.

You may choose to attend a vocational school, a community college, or a 4-year university. Decide which school you are most likely to attend after high school.
