Attention Peninsula College Graduates
Earn Your Bachelor's Degree at Goddard College
Complete Your Bachelor's Without Leaving The Peninsula
Goddard College and Peninsula College have established a transfer partnership that offers Peninsula College DTA graduates direct admission into a Bachelor of Arts degree program at Goddard College. This is a unique option for Peninsula College graduates who want to:
- Study at home in a community that will shape your learning.
- Connect with students, faculty and staff during an 8-day residency.
- Design your degree with individualized guidance from faculty advisors.
How the partnership works
If you have completed a Peninsula College Associate of Arts DTA degree, you have guaranteed admission into the Goddard College Undergraduate Program and can immediately pursue a BA in Individualized Studies, a BA in Health Arts & Sciences, or a BA in Sustainability in Port Townsend, Washington or Plainfield, Vermont. You can also directly apply for admission to the BA in Education Program (Seattle, Washington or Plainfield, Vermont) or the BFA in Creative Writing Program (Plainfield, VT).
You may also transfer work and credit from other colleges. A total of 75 semester-hour credits can transfer to Goddard, which means you may be able to graduate in just three semesters.
The Goddard College Undergraduate Program allows you to study what you are passionate about in a low-residency format. Low-residency education includes eight days of study on campus each semester, followed by independent study from home guided by one-on-one faculty support throughout the semester.
Different Than Online Education
Goddard's model honors you, the student, as an individual, with specific interests, goals and needs, unlike disembodied online programs or faceless, increasingly larger university lecture halls.
Goddard invented the low-residency model in 1963, which has since been adopted by many other colleges and universities nationwide. Low-residency education offers the best of what distance education, online programs, and traditional campus-learning offer.
Low-residency means that at the beginning of each semester you come to either Goddard's Plainfield, VT or Port Townsend, WA campus for eight days of intensive study. Residencies are a time to explore, network, learn, share, and celebrate with peers, staff, and faculty. While you work with advisors to forge individualized study plans for the semester, you also have the opportunity to attend workshops, advising groups, keynote addresses, large celebrations and a host of other rich and interesting events where you also learn from other adult students.
For 150 years, Goddard College has been committed to providing accessible and affordable education. Give one of our admissions counselors a call today at 800.906.8312 or request more information here.
