    CONSTRUCTION TRADES PATH

    America wasn’t built from behind a desk—and here’s a thought—your career doesn’t have to be either! Welcome to the construction industry, where education is on-the-job, work is exciting and careers are built from the ground up. From laborers and cement masons, to carpenters and heavy equipment operators, a career in the construction trades is built on the same foundation—solid skills learned through pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs. You can have the job you want without the expense and time invested in a degree program. You can earn while you learn.

    CONSTRUCTION DEGREE PATH

    Maybe you’re more interested in the design or management side of construction? Perhaps it’s important to you that you get an Associates, Bachelors, Masters, or Doctoral Degree. In either case, the Construction Degree construction path could be for you.

    Construction project managers, safety directors, engineers, and estimators prepare for their careers through earning a two or four-year degree in construction management, engineering, or business. While you’re finishing your degree, get a feel for working in the industry by participating in extracurricular activities like AGC Student Chapters, student organizations operate on various campuses across California. You’ll be able to build your practical skills outside of the classroom.
