Course Sequence

CCS Coursework for the CCS Certificate

  1. CCS students attend classes designed specifically for Career & Community Studies and TCNJ elective courses.
  2. CCS courses focus on independent living, financial independence, computer literacy skills and career awareness and discovery.
  3. TCNJ elective courses are selected by the student’s area of interest and are taken independently and/or with mentor support.
  4. A CCS Certificate requires students to participate in both CCS and TCNJ coursework in addition to practicum and internship hours.
  5. CCS course development is in progress.  A course syllabus for each course will be provided at the beginning of each semester on the first day of class.
  6. Course offerings will continue to increase as they become available to CCS students.
