The general education curriculum offers a prescribed core of general education courses that provide opportunities for lifelong learning in various fields. Students desiring to transfer to a four-year college or university may take a transfer curriculum consisting of academic courses that meet college and university lower division major requirements.

The career preparation curriculum prepares students for immediate employment or occupational upgrading. This can be done in two years or less of full-time training at Santa Monica College. Persons who are already employed may take courses that lead to promotion or salary enhancement.
