Programs of Study

At Delaware Technical Community College Students May Be Accepted In Associate Degree, Diploma Or Certificate Programs.

Associate Degree Programs

The Associate in Applied Science degree curricula prepare students for immediate employment and provide a balance between the studies necessary to earn a livelihood and those needed for understanding and participating in social, political, and cultural activities. The Associate of Arts in Teaching Degree curriculum prepares students to transfer to a senior institution in order to complete a baccalaureate degree in teaching. Classes are scheduled in the early morning, late afternoon, evening and/or weekends to meet the students' demands. Distance Education classes are also available. The College provides quality instructors, experienced Academic counselors, and other support staff to all students.

If you plan to transfer to another college after completing an associate degree at Delaware Technical Community College, consult with your program advisor to determine whether your associate degree program is articulated with a senior institution. These connected degree programs (www.dtcc.edu/connecteddegree/) have transfer provisions you need to know. For other transfers, consult the College catalog or the Admissions Office of the institution which you plan to attend as soon as possible. Transferability of courses and programs is determined solely by the institution to which the student transfers.

Diploma & Certificate Programs

Diploma and certificate programs and courses prepare students for specific employment. All programs are tailored to meet the needs and abilities of the individual and to provide a marketable skill which will enable him/her to compete successfully in the job market. Additional information may be obtained by calling the Admissions Office at your nearest campus.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Delaware Technical Community College is currently offering short-term study abroad courses. These credit courses with an integrated study abroad component are generally offered during the summer semester lasting approximately ten to twenty-one days. Many of these courses can/will be accepted as an elective to curriculum programs. For a list of current study abroad opportunities, contact your International Education Coordinator at your home campus or visit the International Education webpage at: http://www.dtcc.edu/future/international.

Cooperative Education/Internship Programs

Cooperative Education/Internship is a partnership between the student, business, industry, government, or service agencies, and the College. This work experience is available in selected academic programs and may be scheduled for one or two semesters. The College classroom exposes the students to facts, theories, and principles; the student applies those principles and theories in an actual job environment. A student on a co-op/internship can receive training and experience in a professional environment that supplements learning in a campus lab, classroom, or library.

English As A Second Language

The ESL program serves the varied needs of persons for whom English is not a native language. Participants can develop communication skills which will enable them to succeed in the United States. English skills will be developed so that students can prepare themselves to participate more independently in American society and, if they desire, pursue a college degree.

Specialized Occupations

The Specialized Occupations program was established to meet the special training needs of Delaware business, industry, and professions. The objectives are twofold:

  1. To satisfy the educational needs of employers and employees in areas where employment opportunities are too limited to justify establishment of formal education programs.
  2. To prepare employees for new or increased responsibilities at their present place of employment through a combination of college-level studies and appropriate on-the-job experience.

Workforce Development And Community Education

The Workforce Development and Community Education (WDCE) Division provides a broad range of education and training geared to meet specific workforce development and community education needs. The Division serves its constituency through programs in four main areas: Conferences & Seminars, Community & Continuing Education, Corporate & Contract Training, and Workforce Training. The Workforce Development and Community Education  Division is the outreach arm of the College, encompassing special projects not available through other instructional areas.

Blackboard 9
Overview
Blackboard 9 features a streamlined navigation system and improved course setup process. The latest version of Blackboard offers new and improved social learning tools such as blogs and journals, easier navigation, and other Web 2.0 technologies that allow for greater interactivity and collaboration. Blackboard 9 uses a Web 2.0 interface that allows users to drag and drop items that appear on the screen, select from drop down menus, and access contextual help.

Interface
Course content creation and editing tools are embedded throughout the course and no longer require the instructors to access the Control Panel. Instructors click on the Edit Mode switch in the top right corner of any Blackboard page.

All options in the Control Panel are available from the main Course Menu. Instructors have direct access to edit and organize the Course Menu and may use the drag and drop feature to change the order of menu items. Course Menu items that do not contain any content are automatically hidden from student view but are visible to the instructor while in Edit Mode.

In addition, Bb 9 has eliminated the separate receipt page that the user sees every time they successfully perform an action. Confirmations now appear on the same page on which the user is working.
File Collection and Exchange
The Digital Drop Box has been replaced by the Assignments Tool. This tool allows instructors to download all of the student files for a particular assignment in a single zip file. Blackboard automatically renames each student's file to include the name of the assignment, the student's username, and the filename the student originally submitted. There is a Group File Exchange that works like the old Digital Drop Box, for Groups only.

Blogging and Journal Tools
Blackboard 9 has a built in private Blog and Journal tools that allow students to create and share ideas with their instructors or other students enrolled in the same class. Both of these tools may not be viewed outside Blackboard.

Individual journals allow students to record what they are learning. These thoughts can be private between a student and instructor or shared with others in the course. The author and the instructor can add comments. Group journals allow groups of students to reflect collaboratively and comment on group member's finding.

Individual blogs provide each student in a course with their own area to share thoughts and work with others in the course. Students are able to receive comments and feedback on their individual blog from others in the course. Course blogs allow users in a particular course to share thoughts and work in a common area where all the students in the same course can read and add comments. Group blogs allow groups of students in a course to collaboratively post thoughts and comments on each other's work while everyone else in the course can view and comment on the groups' entries.

Groups
Instructors can now create any number of groups at once. Students can randomly be assigned to groups, manually assigned by the instructor, or asked to sign-up for a group themselves. Students can create their own self-enrollment groups, although instructors have the option of modifying or restricting access to the student created groups.

Redesigned Grade Center (formerly the Grade Book) Instructors can enter results, scores, percentages, and other forms of grading directly into the Grade Center spreadsheet. This inline editing process is similar to Microsoft Excel. Each grade entered into the Grade Center is automatically saved.
The Grade Center automatically records each grade's history. If an instructor or TA changes a grade, the grade history will show the new grade, the old grade(s), when the grade(s) was changes and who made the changes. Instructors can create "Smart Views" that categorize students based on selected criteria. This is helpful for courses that have been combined as instructors are now able to view students by section. It also works well for instructors who use TA's and want to divide the management of student grades between those TA's. The Grade Center supports average grade and minimum/maximum grade calculations. Instructors are now able to drop the lowest score easily. Instructors have the ability to create and print grade reports.
