Hello there! You're definitely free to explore trade school after college. If your degree isn't quite hitting the mark in terms of satisfaction or income, it's always smart to keep a plan B in your pocket. Picking up practical skills is a fantastic way to ensure you're always in demand, whether you're working for a company or running your own show.

I absolutely think you can! When it comes to your career, as long as you can find a level of contentment and take care of yourself, its ok.

I think the two can actually compliment each other. If you say get a business AA and then do a trade school, that combo can help you start your own business.

Certainly! It just means a longer time to complete both.

Many community colleges offer trade programs so you can still get the college experience.

A college degree along with a trade program could help with moving into a management position.

I hope this helps!

Hello, Phone !

A person can absolutely attend a vocational school once they receive their Bachelors Degree from a university. I knew two classmates as a theatre major when I was in college that did that. One went to Cosmetology School and one went to Esthetician School after obtaining their Bachelors Degrees.

You can obtain an Associates Degree in a technical major. The City College of San Francisco does offer Associates Degrees for a selection of technical careers. Even San Francisco State University offers an online program for technical programs. Laney College in Oakland offers Associates Degrees for various technical studies. You can also attend a specialized technical/vocational school for the training but check to see if they offer a certificate or an Associates Degree. It will depend on what you want to study at the trade school. I have left a link for you below of a list showing which trade schools are in your area so you can review them all and come to a choice when you are ready.

My advice is that is it most definitely a great idea because the more training and skill you have, the more prepared you will be to enter the workforce. It will greatly add to your marketability, circle of professional contacts and the cost of technical school is most usually lower than colleges.

I hope that this is of help and I wish you all the best !
