Students pursuing a bachelor’s degree may be interested in UMM’s Bachelor of College Studies (BCS) Degree. With the advice and guidance of the BCS committee, the student crafts an individual interdisciplinary set of courses that fits his or her background and educational goals. By design, this degree meets the unique needs of traditional, non-traditional, and returning students who are not otherwise served by existing programs.

Why Study College Studies at UMM?

A focus in special education may be integrated into the BCS degree. Students who are seeking teacher certification through this degree must successfully pass the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators exams, the Praxis content area test for this area (#5354), as well as the Praxis Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) test as part of their Maine Department of Education application for initial teacher certification.
