PROJECT BASED LEARNING:
Architecture students work with real-life projects such as a recent redesign of the
Good Samaritan Shelter in Santa Maria, CA. This project included model building,
blueprint and design details, artist renderings and oral presentations to faculty
and community members on each individual student project. Each semester, a different
project is selected for the class to work with.
The American Institute of Architectural Students (AIAS) is active on campus and every
year, a group of students participate in the Cal Poly State University Open House
Design Competition in San Luis Obispo, California.

Emergency Medical Services Program
"Pursuing an EMS certificate at Allan Hancock College was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am learning from some of the best instructors at one of the best training complexes around. I have a great group of classmates and we work to help each other toward graduation. I am so proud of being a member of the first EMS class at the new Public Safety Training Complex and I feel prepared to enter the work force as a Hancock graduate."
