Streamlined A2B Programs 

A2B programs were designed for adults who have completed anl associate’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university that normally doesn’t transfer well to a bachelor’s degree program.  With A2B programs, your general education courses (what BW calls the Core Curriculum) are almost entirely met through your associate's degree, and your focus is on completing your major and minor fields of study in the bachelor's degree.  Earn your Bachelor of Arts degree in as little as 21 courses, in any of these major areas:

The A2B in Organizational Leadership is now offered as an online program (classes offered entirely online or hybrid with very limited on-campus classes) as well as traditional campus-based classes in Berea.
