Degrees & Certificate Offerings at the Magnolia Avenue Campus

Pellissippi State Community College’s Magnolia Avenue Campus is located in the heart of downtown Knoxville and has state-of-the-art science, anatomy and physiology and computer labs. On the Magnolia Avenue Campus, you can complete certain degrees or certificates without ever leaving campus.


If you plan to earn your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year university — but you’re not sure what options you might pursue there — you can earn a general transfer degree. Completing one of these degrees will fulfill the general education requirements at a four-year university. However, that flexibility means that you’re responsible for ensuring that the courses you take will be accepted by the university you plan to attend.

General Associate of Arts

General Associate of Science

Additionally, the Magnolia Avenue Campus offers a common core of courses for prospective K-5 teachers, consisting of an introduction to teaching and technology courses and to standards-based mathematics and science courses. The Associate of Science in Teaching degree allows students to transfer to any Tennessee Board of Regents university as a junior, without loss of credits.
