Students may earn associate degrees in Liberal Arts-History, Health Sciences, Criminal Justice, and Business Administration without setting foot in a classroom.

May 17, 2019, Jersey City, NJ – Hudson County Community College (HCCC) will add two new degree programs to its “fully online” roster. Beginning in the Fall 2019 semester, the College will offer Associate in Arts (A.A.) Liberal Arts-History and Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Health Sciences degrees. The College presently offers Associate in Science (A.S.) in Criminal Justice and A.S. in Business Administration fully online degree programs.

“We are committed to making higher education accessible and affordable for everyone,” said HCCC President Dr. Chris Reber. “Thanks to our fully online degree programs, obligations to work and family will not be obstacles to earning a degree – one can learn any time and anywhere that is convenient. These programs are ideal, whether students plan to pursue a career or transfer to a baccalaureate program.”

The HCCC fully online degree programs are available in varied formats of 7-week, 12-week or 15-week courses.  HCCC offers online students technical support any time of day or night. In addition, one-on-one, online tutoring is offered by appointment and may be scheduled online.  

Students who enroll in the College’s fully online courses pay in-County tuition rates regardless of where they live, as long as they complete their degree studies in the fully online program. 

The A.A. in Liberal Arts-History degree can lead to employment as research assistants, museum curators, cultural center directors, tourism industry specialists, and more in private and public sectors. 

The A.A.S. in Health Sciences degree is ideal for certified/licensed healthcare professionals to advance in their careers. Those who can benefit include pharmacy technicians, surgical technicians, licensed practical nurses, ultrasound technicians, and others.

The A.S. in Business Administration degree provides a strong academic foundation for core business functions and can lead to in-demand careers in accounting, marketing, economics, banking, and finance. 

The A.S. in Criminal Justice degree lays the groundwork for careers in law and public safety, including law enforcement, security, loss prevention, forensic science, private investigations, legal counsel, corrections, and more.
