Capture Welcomes Bucks County Community College

Introducing one of Capture Higher Ed’s newest partners, Bucks County Community College in Newtown Township, Pa.

The county’s first public two-year college, Bucks is a vibrant center for community engagement and learning, offering associate degrees, certificate programs, continuing education and transfer opportunities to more than 4,000 full-time students and over 5,500 part-time students.

Established in 1964 on 200 acres purchased from Temple University, the campus has grown significantly over the years with expansions in each of the past six decades. To better serve the needs of the entire county, Bucks founded Upper Bucks Campus in Perkasie in 1999 as well as Lower Bucks Campus in Bristol in 2007.

Today, the community college offers two kinds of associate degrees: transfer and occupational. The transfer degree programs, which range from majors in art history to sports management, are designed to parallel the first two years of study at four-year colleges and universities, allowing students to set their sights anywhere to attain advanced degrees. The occupational degree programs, which range from majors in accounting to tech entrepreneurship, prepare students for entry-level positions within their chosen career area.

Outside the classroom, Bucks provides students opportunities to grow personally and expand their experience through clubs, organizations, groups, intramural sports, special events, service projects, lectures, conferences and much more. Bucks has 14 men’s and women’s athletics programs. The Centurions compete in the Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (EPAC).

The college also offers a variety of personal enrichment programs for its surrounding communities including computer courses, cooking classes, history courses and much more.

The mission of Bucks is to provide “a diverse community of learners with exemplary, accessible educational opportunities and the personal connections to foster success.” Its vision is to cut “innovative paths that inspire educational, career and personal fulfillment.”

We are proud to welcome Bucks County Community College to the Capture family of partners.
