Prince George’s Community College was established in 1958 with an aim of providing an enriching learning experience to all its students. With an average class size of less than twenty students, the faculty provides resources that help students in increasing their professional value and academic qualifications by giving them one to one attention.
The school has special online classes for working students in 11 disciplines, ranging from arts, law and business administration. Students also have the option of choosing hybrid programs which are a mix of classroom training and online classes. Apart from this, students can earn credits through internships, weekend programs and personal assessments.
With more than sixty different courses on offer through campus programs, students can choose from a wide range of subjects in healthcare, social sciences, liberal arts, science and technology.
Available programs are segregated into transfer programs, which are primers to four year programs offered in universities; and career programs, which provide the skills and technical expertise necessary for career advancement. A transfer program helps you complete the pre requisites of four year degree programs without the requirement of SAT or ACT scores!
Prince George’s Community College also offers three special programs:
1. The Hillman’s Entrepreneur Program, funded by the Hillman family for students who want to become entrepreneurs. Continuing education for the entrepreneurial program is provided at the University of Maryland College Park.
2. The Honors Program specifically caters to academic over achievers. It provides them with a 100% scholarship and guaranteed admission to four year programs in participating universities.
3. The Collegian Centers provide mentoring, communication opportunities, and internship guidance to students. All subject disciplines have one collegian center each.
Prospective students are encouraged to visit the college for help with admissions and financial assistance.
