Aviation Studies

The Aviation Studies, A.S. degree is focused on providing students with the first two years of a baccalaureate degree in areas of study such as airport management, aviation business administration, professional pilot, air traffic control and air transportation management. The program is designed with a substantial prescription of both general education electives and program courses so students may tailor their coursework to meet their transfer goals.

Students should identify the institution to which they plan to transfer and, through academic advisement, complete courses at Atlantic Cape that will not only transfer to a baccalaureate degree granting institution, but also count as an equivalent course at the receiving institution. Atlantic Cape has arranged transfer articulation agreements with several colleges. 

Contact the division chair for a list of transfer agreements.  It is strongly recommended that students pursuing this degree regularly meet with their faculty advisor.

For additional program information, please contact aviation division chair, Timothy Cwik, at (609) 343-4992 or tcwik@atlantic.edu.

Upon completion of this program students will be able to:

  • Complete the first two years of study towards a baccalaureate degree in aviation studies;
  • Communicate technical concepts;
  • Apply quantitative knowledge and skills;
  • Apply scientific knowledge and reasoning;
