Office Administration―Associate in Science

Office assistants are an integral part of the daily operations of the businesses for which they work.

Effective administrative assistants are highly organized with excellent writing and communication skills. They should be detail oriented, able to use office technology and equipment efficiently, and willing to continuously update their technical skills.


The purpose of this program is to prepare a person for employment as an office systems manager, administrative secretary, executive office administrator or to provide supplemental training for a person previously or currently employed in these occupations.

PHSC offers several certificates that can be earned as students work toward the AS degree. The Associate in Science degree in Office Administration includes a certificate in Office Management, Office Specialist and Office Support. 


This program can be completed in approximately two years if students attend classes on a full-time basis.


This program can be completed on the West Campus in New Port Richey; however, many courses within the program are available on all campuses and/or online.
