Flexible, Part-Time Degree and Certificate Completion—at Boston University
Boston University’s Metropolitan College offers a wide range of bachelor’s degree completion programs in convenient, part-time evening formats—ideal for busy professionals who seek to earn a Boston University degree without turning their personal lives upside down or putting their careers on hold.
Along with self-paced programs in a variety of majors, MET also offers the structured, two-year Accelerated Degree Completion Program—leading to bachelor’s degrees in Computer Science or Management Studies—and an online Undergraduate Degree Completion Program.
A bachelor’s degree can give you leverage within your current profession, provide depth to your workplace knowledge, and put you on an even playing field with your colleagues. According to 2020 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics employment projections, a bachelor’s degree:
- Boosts median annual salary by as much as 105 percent—compared to earnings of those with some college but no degree
- Lays the foundation for advanced studies—pursue a professional master’s degree and the earnings projection grows to a 107 percent increase
- Increases job security—the unemployment rate for bachelor’s holders is 6.9 percent, as opposed to 10 percent or higher for those without a degree.
Breadth of Knowledge
A report by the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) and the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS) has found that liberal arts degrees prepare people for successful careers—and that workers who majored in the humanities or social sciences earn more, especially when pairing their bachelor’s degree with a graduate or professional degree.
Getting your degree at Boston University can lead to more sophisticated job opportunities. A strong foundation in liberal arts ensures that you have the skills to think critically, communicate effectively, and appreciate subtle nuances. These strengths enhance your capabilities for growth and leadership within an organization, regardless of your major.
