Eastern’s Administrative Office Technology (AOT) degree plan is a 62 hour Associate of Applied Science. Students in this program have four different choices of options that they can choose from including; Executive Assistant, Medical Assistant, Health Information Technology, and Legal Assistant. This allows the students the opportunity to gain employment in many areas of work.
Seven of the graduating class of May 2015 have already found jobs in their area of expertise. “I am proud of each of these students, all of them have worked hard to be where they are today. They are all full-time students and have worked at various jobs throughout their college career. Finding employment in their area of expertise right here at home is a blessing to not only the students, but to their new employers as well” states Kim Tollett, instructor of the AOT program.
