Certification and Degree Programs

Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) Partnership Program for General Studies

Johns Hopkins has partnered with Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) to provide hospital employees the opportunity to earn an Associate of Arts degree from the college’s fully accredited general studies program.

Our third-party billing partnership allows employees to satisfy much of the prerequisite coursework required for training programs in a variety of healthcare fields. Employees may take individual courses in general studies and do not need to be in pursuit of a degree program at BCCC.  The 64-to-69 credit program allows employees to also satisfy the full scope of prerequisite courses required for many careers within the healthcare industry, while earning an Associate of Arts in General Studies. Upon completion of the Associate’s degree, credits can be transferred to an upper division of a four-year college or university.

All courses are offered through BCCC and are held either on the BCCC campus or online through the college. This program is open to all benefits-eligible employees of The Johns Hopkins Health System Corporation.
