Eastern is offering selected business courses at Manchester Community College (MCC) this fall. The program is a collaborative project involving Eastern's School of Education and Professional Studies, the Department of Business Administration, and the School of Continuing Education, as well as the University's partners at MCC.  Students who graduate from MCC with an associate's degree have the opportunity to pursue a Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree with a concentration in Management at Eastern by taking select Eastern courses at MCC.

Since 2008, Eastern has been offering Saturday courses leading toward a BGS degree with a concentration in Human Services at both Manchester Community College and Capital Community College. Students have been able to complete a BGS degree by taking these courses as well as select EasternOnline courses, courses at Eastern's main campus, and additional courses as needed at Capital and MCC. Students will not be able to complete their entire Eastern bachelor's degree on the MCC campus. However, classes taken at MCC can be used toward the degree, and participating students will be able to meet many of Eastern's requirements right at MCC.
