The forty-year-old Shoreline Community College offers a limited academic program structure to the students who attend the school. Operating mostly as a technical college, Shoreline Community College only offers seven different transfer associate̠s degree programs. Most of its additional programs are career certification programs. These programs provide students with a brief education that prepares them for specific industry and career positions.For students who wish to leave Shoreline Community College and immediately transfer to a four-year institution and seek a bachelor̠s degree, Shoreline offers associate̠s degree transfer programs. These programs are designed to provide a student with a basic liberal arts education and make transferring credits as simple as possible. Students can pursue an associate̠s degree in business, arts, sciences, fine arts and music.
