Goldey-Beacom College has established partnerships with the following organizations and institutions. We are eager to provide personalized attention and valuable opportunities to set our students apart. These partnerships extend beyond our classroom and allow students the potential to grow beyond their degree.
Career and Technical Education
Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are specialized courses, offered in Delaware high schools, that give students the opportunity to earn early college credits. Prospective students should talk with their Admissions Representative to discuss how this coursework can be applied to their degree at GBC.
Delaware College of Art and Design
For GBC Bachelor of Arts in Communication & Media majors
A unique opportunity is available to students enrolling in the Bachelor of Arts in Communication in Media. Those enrolled in this major will be immersed in at least four creative design courses offered through DCAD, with the option to take more. This partnership prepares students to construct design layouts, understand visual organization and be able to create meaningful visual communication pieces. Being able to study alongside Art and Design students creates an atmosphere for creativity and exploration beyond the GBC campus.
Students interested in this program can find out more in our Frequently Asked Questions.
For DCAD students interested in transferring to GBC
Partnering with Delaware College of Art and Design allows a pathway for students to combine their passion for art and design with English or business to earn a bachelor’s degree. For more information, prospective students should speak with their Delaware College of Art and Design advisor or Admissions Representative at Goldey-Beacom College.
Widener University, Delaware Law School
Goldey-Beacom College has an articulation agreement with Widener University, Delaware Law School. This agreement provides two pathways for students to pursue law school. The 3 + 3 Early Admission Program allows students to earn a bachelor’s degree and a J.D. in only six years, instead of seven, saving time and money by completing your law degree with your first year of law school simultaneously counting as your last year of undergraduate study. The Express or Guaranteed Admission program provides admission to students who have completed a bachelor’s degree program prior to law school enrollment. For more information, prospective students should speak with their Admissions Representative. Currently enrolled students should speak with their Academic Advisor or Career Services.
Delaware Technical Community College
Through the Connected Degree program, Goldey-Beacom College and Delaware Technical Community College have partnered to offer transfer students a smooth transition. The established connected degrees clearly outline the first two years of study at Delaware Tech and the following two years of study at Goldey-Beacom, thus allowing associate degree graduates to transfer to Goldey-Beacom College as a junior. Students are required to complete specified courses at both institutions, achieve the appropriate GPA, and apply for admission to Goldey-Beacom College. For more information, students should speak with their Delaware Tech program advisor or Admissions Representative at Goldey-Beacom College.
Please see the full list of articulation agreements between GBC and DTCC for details about specific programs.
