Burlington County College expands Green Pathways program

Jun 24, 2014 06:20AM ● Published by Community News Service

In the past year, Burlington County College and technical high schools across the state have continued to maximize green education opportunities for students.

There are now six “Green Pathways Dual Credit Agreements” between BCC and county vocational and technical schools throughout the state. Under the agreements, students who enroll in approved dual-credit Green Pathways courses at their high school have the opportunity to earn three college credits for BCC’s “SST 100 Principles of Sustainability,” a required course in the college's alternative energy technologies, energy management and sustainability associate degree programs.

After BCC’s initial agreement with Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools last year, the college formed additional Green Pathways with Atlantic County Institute of Technology, Camden County Technical Schools, Bergen County Technical Schools, Hunterdon County Polytech Career and Technical School and Cape May County Technical Schools.

The dual credit course is offered in the high school for a $150 tuition fee. Students must receive a grade of C or better in the course to receive BCC college credit.

BCC is the first two-year college in the tri-county area to offer comprehensive green associate degree programs. With support from a NASA grant, BCC created the Center for Sustainability and Alternative Energy and is now offering four green associate degree programs – Sustainability Policy & Management, Sustainable Energy Studies, Alternative Energy Technologies and Energy Management – and two new academic certificates – Building Energy Management and Alternative Energy Technologies.
