Why Choose This Program

After breaking ground, the next most exciting aspect of any construction project is seeing a structure take shape. That defining shape results from the skills, expertise, and care of carpenters.

With a carpentry degree, graduates put their skills to work in residential construction, light and heavy commercial construction, highway and heavy bridgework, cabinetry and millwork.

The specific career options are many, from focused employment like ceiling tile installers or drywall applicators, to building inspectors, customer service representatives for building and hardware supply companies as well as lumber yard manager trainees. Thinking about leadership? The majority of construction supervisors starts in carpentry and then advances their careers.

Want to go into business for yourself? Start your own contracting businesses and build your future on your own terms. Learn more about a degree in carpentry.
