FDTC Bridge Program Degrees
Bachelor of Science in Business Management

Bachelor of Science in Criminology

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 FDTC – Each term, students spend one night per week taking an in-person course with Coker faculty in an FDTC 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.
