If it is your dream to pursue any of so many personally rewarding and lucrative career options in healthcare delivery, then a concentration in Health Science is the ideal choice for you.
Students enrolling in the California Preparatory College Health Science program are guaranteed instruction from competent, caring and qualified teachers. CPC science teachers have been selected to deliver the foundational science knowledge that is necessary for students to achieve successful careers in healthcare professions.
Not everyone aspires to be a physician or dentist. There are wonderfully rewarding careers in such pre-professional healthcare degrees as radiology technology, occupational therapy, nursing, dietetics, physical therapy and physician’s assistant. Whether science classes have been your forte (or favorites) in the past, if you have the desire to utilize your talents in the field of health services, CPC’s teachers and Life Counselors will do everything in their power to help you achieve your goal.
Program learning outcomes detail the knowledge, skills and abilities that you as a student will demonstrate upon successful completion of a program of study.

Business is integral to all that happens in our modern world, and is woven into the fabric of everything that happens. A student choosing to pursue a degree in business has limitless options. The AA Business allows a rather seamless transfer into a four-year business degree program. For those wishing direct employment, the associate degree can be a great starting point.
Due to the fact that it is applicable to so many employment opportunities, to entrepreneurship and to the prudent management of your own financial affairs, a business degree arguably is the most practical degree a student can earn.
Finance and accounting are only the beginning, you will not only learn the content but also how to use it to your advantage. A CPC business student can expect to learn the essentials of personal finance, debt management, basic economics, marketing and business law.
