EASTERN at Capital Community College


Education Coordinator, Julienne Davis

Julienne graduated recently by taking most of her courses from our Fast Track at Capital. She loved the program.  She is planning now to go on for her master's, probably in Social Work.

 


This individualized Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) Degree is designed for individuals who desire to enter or advance
within the field of social and human services. Educational attainment influences the kind of work employees may be assigned and the degree of responsibility that may be entrusted to them. Formal education is almost always required for advancement.


“Fast Track” your degree at Eastern and then consider graduate school!
