Applied Baccalaureate Degrees

Raising the Bar in Higher Education

igkbet娱乐官网Washington needs more people with bachelor's degrees, and the state's colleges and universities are stepping up to help. As part of that effort, community and technical colleges work with their local communities to identify areas of need and develop educational programs that will meet the demand for an educated workforce.

The result: successful alumni, healthy families and a prosperous Washington.

Increasing Bachelor Degrees in Washington

Community and technical colleges play an important role in producing baccalaureate degree graduates in Washington state. SBCTC advocated for community and technical college applied baccalaureate programs to help:

  • Meet state goals for increasing the overall number of baccalaureate degrees awarded to 42,400 per year. The community and technical college system will need to increase the number of their students who transfer to a baccalaureate program to 22,000 by 2030 including 1,400 baccalaureate degrees awarded.
  • Expand the workforce mission of community and technical colleges to serve the needs of local and state employers.
  • Increase educational pathways for professional and technical associate graduates who have been limited in their ability to apply credits toward a bachelor degree. The workforce student population is comprised of a large portion of people of color, older working adults and people (women) who are place bound with family responsibilities.
