Brunswick Community College (BCC), located in Brunswick County, North Carolina, was chartered in 1979 and is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The college’s goal is to make relative and affordable programs available to the community, preparing their students for the future.

Students have the opportunity to earn an associates degree, certificate, or diploma in one of many established two-year programs. There are a variety of subjects to choose from, such as Cosmetology, Nursing, Law Enforcement, and Education, that prepare students for rewarding careers in the area.


BCC provides many different kinds of subject matter that lead the way to a career. Degrees are earned in two years or less, depending on which course is pursued.

For the budget-conscious student, the College Transfer Program will help make sure that classes taken to earn an associate’s degree will transfer over to a four-year college or university. This is a great way to earn credit at a cheaper rate than paying for a more expensive university.

Arts and Sciences

Students who choose the Arts track are more interested in the liberal arts, education, social work, or business. Meanwhile, if a student is more math oriented, the science track may be more appropriate, with subjects such as health care, natural studies, and technology.

Finally, there is an Associate of Fine Arts, for those interested in music and art. However, the college does not include this under the umbrella of the Transfer program because classes in this track are not guaranteed to follow the student to a four-year institution.

Nursing and Allied Health

Students who plan on working in the nursing field can earn one of the following degrees:

  • Associate Degree Nursing
  • Nursing Assistant
  • Phlebotomy
  • Practical Nursing Program

These will prepare future employees in hospitals, clinics, and many other places where a nurse is needed. This is one of the fastest growing careers and getting a two-year degree with the proper training will have a strong impact.

Professional and Technical

This program has many options for those interested in earning a certificate or diploma to enter the workforce as soon as possible. Subjects include cosmetology, business education, aquaculture technology, and Infant/Toddler Care.


Some degrees offered at the school can be earned online so be sure to check the listings before enrolling to make sure the courses you want are there online. Classes can be accessed day or night and it’s a very flexible way to earn credit and get a degree, especially for busy professionals and those that cannot attend a traditional class.
