MCLA launches New Degree Completion Programs:

MCLA is advancing new degree completion programs that will launch in September 2014.  These programs will be offered as cohort-style learning where students begin with a group of peers and proceed through the program together.  Classes are offered in evenings, online, and during weekends to meet the demands of work and family.  Students can also apply work experiences to earn up to 15 credits towards degree.  For more information on these programs, link below.

With all these demands on your time, going back to college can seem daunting. With working adults in mind, MCLA now offers classes in downtown Pittsfield. MCLA has a number of programs with course offerings at the Pittsfield Education Center at The Conte Federal Building as well as the Pittsfield Intermodal Center. Courses are offered early in the morning, during lunch hours, early evening, weekends, and online to accommodate the needs of working adults.
