Fallbrook Education Center Academics


While the Fallbrook Education Center (FEC) offers a comprehensive set of courses, including General Education classes, Palomar College also provides a set of structured guided pathways. These career pathways, or clusters, define a roadmap for college success by laying out courses semester by semester and taking much of the guesswork out of obtaining a degree or certificate.

The Fallbrook Education Center offers the Associate Degree for Transfer (AD-T) in both Psychology and Sociology, targeting focused transfer options. Students at our center will be able to complete 100% of the classes associated with this AD-T through a combination of face-to-face and online offerings. With the Associate Teacher Certificate of Achievement, you can complete all your coursework for the Associate Teacher permit in 16 weeks! The program requires four, 4-week hybrid courses, scheduled one night a week and online. We also offer a Certificate of Proficiency in EMT-Basic. This three-course program prepares you for the National Registry EMT-B written and skills practical exam.

By scheduling nearly all classes at the center according to consistent blocks of time, Palomar College hopes to make it easier for busy students to take a number of courses on a Monday/Wednesday OR a Tuesday/Thursday schedule. Other flexible scheduling options may also be available such as meeting one day a week or opting for courses that meet for 8 weeks  instead of 16 weeks.

The Fallbrook Education Center may change academic programs over time based upon demand and popularity of industry trends and gainful employment opportunities.
