Bakersfield College to Begin Baccalaureate Program This Fall

Bakersfield College has been approved to offer its first baccalaureate program in Industrial Automation starting this semester.  Students that begin this new junior-level program will obtain a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in May of 2018.  

    In 2014, Senate Bill #850 expanded the scope of California’s community colleges from the 1960 Higher Education Master Plan to include more advanced degrees.  Strong leaders in our community, like Assemblywoman Dorothy Donahoe, have helped Bakersfield College move forward to create a better Education system for its students.

     Join BC in the celebration of a monumental step in the right direction and become a part of its history.  For additional information, please visit
