Bachelor's Degree Completion Programs at STCC
Springfield Technical Community College and Elms College have partnered to create a unique bachelor's degree program that offers students the best of both colleges. The end result is an affordable bachelor's degree from Elms College with classes being offered at STCC Technology Park. And you can complete your degree in just 20 months. A degree is currently offered in social work. Beginning in August 2013, a degree in business management and marketing will be offered.
How It Works
The Elms College bachelor's degree completion programs offered at STCC meet all general requirements of Elms College. You enter this program with the required associate's degree, satisfy Elms' core requirements, and complete the requirements of your specific degree program. Essentially, you earn a degree from a private institution in a familiar public school setting.
Classes are held at the Scibelli Enterprise Center at the STCC Technology Park on Saturdays, 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. and 1-5 p.m., and are all taught Elms faculty. By completing your coursework in 10 eight-week sessions over a 20-month period, you can save thousands of dollars by completing your degree in this uniquely affordable program.
When you finish the program, you will be awarded an Elms College bachelor of science degree.
