Southern Technical College

Overview

Southern Technical College offers educational programs on campuses throughout Florida, but also provides the flexibility needed by some students through online learning. Diplomas, certificates, associate or bachelor's degrees are offered to students in areas as varied as allied health, business, criminal justice, education and nursing. However, the school's overall goal is not just to provide an education, but also to help prepare students to become the workforce of the future. Because of the school's focus on a relevant education, students may participate in an internship or externship, but at the same time find that Southern Technical College is working to ensure that its curriculum is up-to-date and that its faculty and technology help to meet the industry needs of both today and the future.
