Designed to provide working adult students from all walks of life the opportunity to earn an affordable, convenient, accredited degree, BC’s Online Degree Program offers six baccalaureate degree opportunities in management and leadership, e-business and entrepreneurship, criminal justice, human services, early childhood education, and nursing (RN-to-BSN), along with an online master’s degree in education (MAEd).
In keeping with a liberal arts education, BC’s online curriculum emphasizes a broad array of perspectives. Classes are delivered in an online format with close contact with professors who genuinely care about the students in the classroom.
