The Baccalaureate Degree Programs at California Community Colleges have been a catalyst of economic and regional development since their inception in 2014. The focused baccalaureate programs at 21 of California’s community colleges offer career-specific bachelor’s degrees to help answer the persistent call from our state’s workforce for trained, skilled workers. 

These tailored workforce programs and training degrees help educate the next generation of California’s workforce, including programs in applied fire management, automotive technology, biomanufacturing and healthcare. The degrees are nonduplicative of those at the California State University system and are tailored to meet specific regional workforce needs. These programs are proving to be transformative for students who otherwise would not consider pursuing a bachelor’s degree.   

Baccalaureate degrees offered at community colleges address access, equity and economic mobility for all Californians and help meet our state’s degree attainment and workforce goals. Learn more about these invaluable programs here
