The purpose of the Associate of Applied Science degree in Entertainment Technology is to prepare students to work as audiovisual specialists and event technicians in a variety of presenting venues such as conference centers, hotels, theaters, houses of worship, sports arenas, resorts, and more!  Student’s multimedia communication skills will strengthen through specialized courses, practicums, and co-ops using industry-specific technology both on campus and in the field. The small student-to-faculty ratio (usually under 15-1) provides students more opportunities for hands-on learning with quality instruction from industry professionals.

Disclosure Regarding Programs for Professional Licensure or Certification

Some programs at Carroll Community College (CCC) are designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional licensure or certification that is required for employment in an occupation.

If you are an out-of-state student seeking professional licensure in a state other than Maryland and you are taking a course or program leading to professional licensure or certification, CCC currently does not guarantee that the course or program meets requirements for professional licensure or certification anywhere other than Maryland. We encourage all students, especially out-of-state students, to contact the appropriate state (or District of Columbia or U.S. territory) licensing board or agency where you intend to work to familiarize yourself with the state educational, licensing, and/or certification requirements.
