Associate of Applied Science, Fine Woodworking (AAS)

The AAS degree in Fine Woodworking combines the skills of using power and hand tools to design and build fine furniture. You will be expected to develop portfolio quality work that demonstrates the ability to design and build original and reproduction pieces reflective of college-level work. Each course will challenge you to develop woodworking skills and specific traditional and contemporary techniques as you progress through the program. This degree is comprised chiefly of woodworking courses plus 15 credits from general education courses.


Build technical expertise in focused areas of woodworking through our certificate programs. Each certificate requires students to follow a set of courses in a specific progression to strategically strengthen their skillset and knowledge as makers of furniture, cabinets, turned objects, or stringed instruments.
