Programs of Study

Academic

Academic core courses and electives may be taken for college transfer or for an Associate of Arts Degree (AA). Academic courses are easily transferred to 4-year colleges and universities. The completion of 62 hours of a designated program of study and graduation from Hinds waives the general education curriculum of 30 hours at any MS four-year public institution.

Public and Private Four-Year College Transfer

Two plus Two Agreements

Hinds Community College has two plus two agreements with Delta State University and the University of Southern Mississippi to offer junior and senior level courses at one of our six locations after completion of the Associate of Art degree program at Hinds. Hinds students can work toward a bachelor's degree from the respective college or university without having to leave the Jackson Metro area.

Additional two plus two agreements are honored with Jackson State University, Mississippi State University, University of Louisiana Monroe and the V3 College of Mississippi University for Women in order to assist students with a seamless transition from the community college to the four year institute and to provide a detailed plan of study in a baccalaureate degree-granting academic program.

Hinds students age 25 or older may take advantage of the unique two plus two agreement with Mississippi College to obtain a bachelor’s degree through the Accelerated Degree Partnership.

Technical

Hinds technical programs of study offer a wide variety of one-year technical certificates and two-year Associate in Applied Science degrees. These graduates are prepared for immediate employment in their field of study. A limited number of pre-approved technical courses will transfer to four year institutions and can be applied to a bachelor’s degree.

Career

Career programs of study offer one-year and two-year certificate programs that prepare the student for immediate employment in their chosen occupation. Career programs are often valuable in updating skills and knowledge for employed workers in business and industry.
