Katherine Johnson, Ed.D., PHSC President, Announces College’s New Name
Pasco-Hernando State College combines high-tech educational facilities and state-of-the-art programs with a traditional focus on teaching.
With campuses located in natural, peaceful landscapes abundant with lush foliage and wildlife, PHSC provides all the advantages of a private liberal arts education— personalized attention, highly credentialed faculty, career and academic programs, and small class sizes— all at an affordable public state college price. Our AA program gives students a solid foundation in the arts and sciences with a choice of major emphasis in teaching, business, engineering and the social and behavioral sciences. Our Associate in Arts degree even comes with a guarantee: guaranteed admission into one of Florida’s 11 public universities as a junior.
PHSC also provides training for more than 30 high-demand careers in healthcare, law, business, and human services through its AS and certificate programs. Our technical programs are designed and taught by experts in their field using the latest equipment and technology. These fields include business, computer engineering, healthcare, human services and law. PHSC programs can be completed in two years or less. Ninety percent of all PHSC graduates end up working in their chosen professions.
At PHSC, we offer educational opportunity for students of all ages and abilities. Our “Open Door” policy welcomes all high school graduates and GED recipients. PHSC also offers GED preparation classes to prepare students to test for the GED diploma. Because PHSC is a public-supported state institution, its fees are generally lower than many other colleges and universities. Approximately 60 percent of all PHSC students receive some form of financial assistance based on financial need and/or merit.
PHSC offers day, evening, weekend and online classes for the convenience of working adults. We have five nearby locations to serve you in Brooksville, Dade City, New Port Richey, Spring Hill and Wesley Chapel.
