Bachelor’s Degree

University of Maine at Machias

The Bachelor of College Studies (BCS) program meets the individualized needs of students who have a strong desire to finish their Bachelor’s degree, have earned at least 45 hours of college credit, and developed a clear and compelling set of program goals and objectives.

The general education and program requirements are broad and flexible enough to give many students an efficient and affordable route to completing their degree. Students work with UMM faculty to develop a Plan of Study that includes overall program objectives, learning outcomes for the Self-Designed concentration, all course work to be completed in all areas of the program, and the planned capstone experience. Past concentrations include Business, Special Education, and Health and Social Services Professional Preparation.
