Title: Make the Connection – from Technical High School to a Bachelor’s and Beyond


The Technical Entrepreneurship Degree Program allows students at Bucks County Technical High School in Bristol, Middle Bucks Institute of Technology in Jamison, and Upper Bucks County Technical School in Perkasie to earn up to 29 college credits from Bucks while in high school. They can then earn a 60-credit associate degree in technical entrepreneurship from Bucks in just one year. Students are guaranteed admission to Bloomsburg University to finish the final two years of a Bachelor of Applied Science in Technical Leadership.

This program recognizes the value of the marketable skills learned at career and technical high schools, and complements them with the critical thinking and broad-based learning of a degree program. The program was designed with the needs of students in mind. While still enrolled in technical school, students can earn college credits from Bucks through a combination of taking college courses at the high school (known as dual enrollment), scoring advanced on a vocational skills test recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, earning industry credentials, and completing co-op education hours. Forty-five students enrolled in Introduction to Entrepreneurship dual enrollment class the first time it was offered in Fall 2016. The first graduate will be in May 2018.

After graduation, students can enroll at Bucks and earn another 31 to 33 credits to graduate with an Associate of Arts degree, then transfer to Bloomsburg, which will offer upper-level university classes through a combination of online courses and face-to-face courses held at  Bucks County Community College.

Presenter: Tracy Timby, Dean of the Business Department, Bucks County Community College
