We are intentional about your success.

Announcing SMC’s new four-year degree program.

SMC’s new Bachelor’s Degree with Concentrations in Business, English, History and Religion is enrolling for Fall 2019!  Our unique degree includes a core of career development courses to prepare you to be successful in the workplace and gain a competitive advantage when searching for your first job or internship. SMC will continue to offer Associate Degrees. We believe in their value for students – regardless of your education or career plans.

At SMC, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach

Choose the degree path that works for YOU.

Start with a two-year degree that’s affordable and achievable, and get the kind of academic support that only SMC can provide while you discover your career path. Then go right into the workforce if you need to earn an income, or stay and complete your four-year degree at SMC.

We’ll help you every step of the way, even if you decide to transfer to the right college for your chosen career path.

Our two-year Associate Degrees will prepare you for majors in any field and transfer easily to let you finish your degree at hundreds of colleges nationwide.

Our new four-year Bachelor’s Degree with Concentrations in Business, English, History and Religion plus the Camak Core will prepare you for success in almost any career path following graduation.

(Note: The current course catalog does not include information about our Bacherlor’s Degree with Concentrations in Business, English, History and Religion. The new catalog is coming soon.)



Classes in these and other disciplines will prepare you to complete a major in any field. You’ll earn an associate degree in a general subject that will transfer easily to a bachelor’s degree program.

*Available as a concentration in SMC's four-year degree.

Liberal Arts


SMC is a liberal arts college. This means that, like most American colleges, you’ll spend your first two years taking a wide variety of courses to expose you to many different subjects. This approach benefits students who already know what they plan to major in as well as students who haven’t made a decision about a college major or career path.
