Earn Your Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology or Business Management

Coker College and Florence-Darlington Technical College are combining the best of our two educational experiences. After earning an associate degree from FDTC, graduates of their criminal justice technology, business marketing, and business management programs can transfer credits directly into a bachelor’s program at Coker. Even better? We’ll bring the classes to a familiar location—the very same FDTC campus where you’ve been learning all along.

Students in these bridge programs will spend one night per week taking an in-person course in an FDTC classroom. In addition, you’ll take a second class each term, taught entirely online. This schedule allows you to complete six (6) credit hours per eight-week term (a full-time schedule for financial aid purposes), which puts you on track to finish your bachelor’s degree requirements in as few as two years.

Not a criminology or business management major? You can still transfer relevant Florence-Darlington Technical College associate degree credits to Coker’s branch campus in Florence, where we offer a sociology major, in addition to business and criminology.
