Earning a degree doesn’t have to be complicated. You just have to find a program that caters to your busy schedule and both of these programs do just that.

Organizational Management Accelerated Degree

Students can earn a degree in 18 months by taking classes just once a week for four hours right on the campus of SMC. In this program, faculty and business leaders provide expertise and offer a dynamic exchange of ideas that prepares students for successful careers in business or graduate school. To be accepted, a student must have already completed 62 credit hours at SMC or another accredited college. In fact, you can transfer up to 88 credits from SMC to Bethel's program.

The additional hours needed to meet the 124 hour minimum for the baccalaureate degree may be completed at Southwestern Michigan College or other accredited colleges or universities or through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA).

Bachelor of Science in Human Services Completion Degree

The Bachelor of Science in the Human Services Completion program is open to students who have at least 62 transferrable college credits. This program allows students who don’t have the time to enroll in college full-time the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree in two years at the Dowagiac campus of Southwestern Michigan College.

This degree develops the skills needed for working in social service agencies, group homes, crisis centers, mental health agencies, religious organizations, extended care facilities and substance abuse centers. It also gives adult students the preparation needed for graduate school.

The student must have an overall grade point average of 2.0 or greater in all transfer credits to participate.
