MDC Bachelor’s Degrees Open Doors to Powerful Future

Every year MDC responds to the demands of students and the workforce by offering bachelor’s degrees in exciting fields and industries. As state and national data clearly indicate, the power of holding a bachelor’s degree is undeniable.

Also undeniable is the benefit of earning that degree at MDC, as opposed to a state or private university. MDC’s lower tuition costs and the higher initial earning potential of alumni holding degrees from MDC are both pluses. As the charts demonstrate, getting a bachelor’s degree at MDC costs students and taxpayers less; serves a population that previously did not have these opportunities, as indicated by the student body ages; and places graduates in jobs more readily than other institutions.

Miami Dade College’s tuition for a bachelor’s degree is 41 percent less than at Florida public universities and 89 percent less than at private universities in Florida.

In addition, Miami Dade College provides a wide variety of options for everyone, with classes designed for both traditional and nontraditional students in mind, offering more day, evening and weekend options at its eight campuses, as well as online courses.

Best of all, degrees offered at MDC, which has built an outstanding reputation, reflect the local economic needs, making it easier to find high-paying work after graduation. Ninety-four percent of MDC baccalaureate graduates are placed in their field within one year after graduation.

With offerings in fields ranging from public safety management to education to nursing, there is something for everyone wanting to experience a more fulfilling life with the power of a bachelor’s degree from MDC.
