Certification and Degree Programs

Baltimore City Community College Degree Program

The Johns Hopkins Hospital 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.

The 64-to-69 credit program allows employees who ultimately want to pursue a four-year health-related degree to take the first two years of prerequisite courses tuition-free. Upon completion of the Associate’s degree, credits can be transferred to an upper division of a four-year college or university.

Most courses are held in the evenings on the East Baltimore campus—a convenient option for full-time employees. This program is open to all benefits-eligible employees of The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Courses offered as part of the program include, but are not limited to:

  • English

Additional Features and Benefits
