Construction Management Option

The Architecture and Interior Design Department’s Construction Management Option PDF has been created to address two main educational goals: to prepare those who wish to transfer, and to prepare those who wish to go into the workforce and start their career. Frequently, our students do both. Students are prepared to enter the workforce as field personnel at the construction site or office management. Students may also transfer to one of the schools we have developed an agreement with to further their education and obtain a bachelor's degree.
