MTC Bridge Program Degrees

Bachelor of Science in Business Management
  • Available to MTC business management and marketing graduates
Bachelor of Science in Criminology
  • Available to MTC criminal justice graduates

100% Online Degree Options

If you need even more flexibility, Coker offers four undergraduate degrees that are completely online––business management, criminology, psychology, and sociology.  

How will this work?

  • Classes will be both online and in-seat at MTC – Each term, students spend one night per week taking an in-person course with Coker faculty in a MTC classroom and a second class taught entirely online.
  • 8-week terms – You’ll complete six (6) credit hours per eight-week term (a full-time schedule for financial aid purposes).
  • 2 classes each term – Each term you’ll complete one course pertaining to your major (business or criminology) and one general education course.
  • You will have support – You’ll be part of a cohort, meaning you’ll be with the same group of students as you work together toward your bachelor’s degree. In addition, you’ll have Coker’s supportive faculty, staff, and resources to help you along the way.

How long will it take to earn my bachelor’s degree?

If students are able to complete two classes each 8-week term (including a summer term), they could earn their bachelor’s degree in just two years.

Will my MTC credits transfer to Coker?

“Once I got my associate’s,...I realized...if I want to go anywhere in my career and make the money I feel like I want to make, then I really need to push for that bachelor’s. I feel like the people who are in these...programs, they’re all working individuals mostly and I feel like the instructors really take that into account...they’re very mindful that we all have careers and that we are working individuals and so they’ve really made it awesome.”

Ashleigh Altman , '18 - business management bridge program student

“I’ve always been really interested in it. I always told myself I’d go back and get my bachelor’s ‘one day.’ But that’s always scary to say ‘one day.’ You don’t know if that day is actually going to come...With criminal justice and criminology, there’s only so much you can do with an associate’s degree. I originally wanted to be a probation officer. I’ve been looking at a lot of different [positions]. There’s just so many...A lot of those fields, you have to have a bachelor’s degree.”
