Degree Completion Programs: Students experience a seamless transfer from Berkshire Community College (BCC) Associate of Arts degree in business administration to an MCLA Bachelor of Science degree in business administration. Once accepted into this program, you only have to complete 57 credits through MCLA - all of which are offered in Pittsfield or online. You can complete a bachelor's degree in less than two years of year-round coursework. Enrollment is also open to students who hold associate's degrees from institutions other than BCC.
FAST-TRACK: Designed for adult learners who have some academic, professional, and life experience, FAST-TRACK provides the same quality MCLA education that full-time day students receive, presented in a convenient format through online and hybrid course offerings. In addition, you may be eligible to receive up to 30 credits for learning experiences outside of a formal academic setting.

Online Learning: In partnership with Ed 2 Go, one of the largest providers of online continuing noncredit education in the US, MCLA offers a library of courses online in topics of interest, each for $99.
Summer College: Each year MCLA's Summer College offers some of the best courses that the campus has to offer. Get ahead of your year-round college program or take a course you haven't been able to fit in. For example, you can obtain the equivalent of two years of Spanish in just two six-week summer sessions through our foreign language institute. And educators can accomplish significant progress toward their Master's degrees by taking week-long intensive day courses and achieving 3-4 credits
All of our classes are enrollment-driven and require a minimum number of participants. We make the decision to hold a class one week before it begins. Please check with us to ensure your course is running.
