Programs of Study
The following sections detail the college's academic programs of study that lead to a Bachelor of Science, Associate in Science or Certificate. These programs of study are designed in a flexible manner to meet the needs of various prospective and continuing students.
Goodwin College considers itself a true milestone college. We believe that all credentials earned by our students towards reaching their goal of obtaining a bachelor or associate degree should be celebrated. Many of our students need to experience some kind of "success" or accomplishment in the pursuit of a degree. Therefore, our bachelor degree programs have been designed to be true 2 + 2 programs. The first two years of the bachelor degree program mirrors our associate degrees in the same major. After two years of study, most students, working closely with their academic advisors, will have completed the requirements for an associate degree. Additionally, students may have completed requirements for one of our certificate programs while working towards the associate degree. Students may apply for, and be awarded, these credentials while continuing their studies at the college. These credentials will allow them to find entry-level positions in their chosen careers while continuing their studies towards a bachelor's degree.
Goodwin College offers 3 full semesters during a calendar year. This allows full-time students to finish their baccalaureate degrees in 3 years. Part-time students can finish in 4 ½ to 5 years. The accelerated format of three semesters within a calendar year allows students to achieve their goals of an expeditious entry into the workforce and the attainment of a degree or certificate.
