NEXT STEPS

SMC’s career-ready Bachelor’s Degree has been created with YOUR success in mind. Instead of forcing you to choose one major or requiring you to take the extra time and expense to double-major, SMC lets you choose two concentrations for your degree.

Concentrations are similar to majors, but require fewer hours. With two concentrations, your degree will be more applicable to more careers – which is vital in the rapidly-changing workplace.

CHOOSE TWO CONCENTRATIONS (MAJORS):

  • Business
  • English
  • History
  • Psychology (available 2020)
  • Religion

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT:

All SMC Bachelor’s Degree candidates take require courses in the Camak Core, SMC’s innovative career development curriculum. Camak Core courses, named for SMC’s founder,  will add practical experiences and soft skills training to your degree. You’ll graduate with skills valued by employers in almost any field.
