Non-Credit Programs and Courses

Non-credit courses, workshops and certificate programs allow individuals to acquire a specific skill or certification in a timely and affordable manner.

A note about non-credit classes: Non-credit courses are taught by professionals within their areas of expertise but, generally, the instructors are not faculty from Bridgewater State University. Ed2Go and MindEdge market their courses and programs  nationally through partnerships with colleges and universities. BSU offers these courses for professional development as a community service. The non-credit courses listed here are not included in any degree program of Bridgewater State University, nor can they be considered as a pre-requisite for any degree program.
