Degrees & Certificates

Here at Miramar College we have many programs to help you achieve your goal. Choosing the right path is so important, which is why we encourage you to meet with a counselor.

You can also check the degree and transfer maps for different programs. These maps will show you which courses to take, semester by semester, so you can work efficiently to reach your goal – whether it’s earning a degree or certificate, or transferring to a university in your major. Don't forget to meet with a counselor to confirm that this map will help you with your specific goal!

Get Involved

The Social & Behavioral Sciences & Education ACP will offer workshops, events and other activities that are keyed to your major and related subjects. You'll find information about all of this and more in your CALC canvas shell.
