Bachelor's Degrees @NCC

Did you know you can earn a Bachelor's degree without leaving NCC? Thanks to exciting partnerships with East Stroudsburg University and Bloomsburg University, NCC graduates can earn a bachelor's degree in several fields on Northampton's Bethlehem Campus. Nursing and business administration students who have completed their associate degrees at NCC will be able to earn bachelor's degrees from ESU on NCC's Bethlehem campus. And while it's a 186-mile round trip from Bethlehem to Bloomsburg, it's one NCC students will never need to make to earn a bachelor's degree in technical leadership from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.
