Our Programs

Bright College students learn as part of a cohort—a team of classmates they will work with to take on real-world challenges and solve problems creatively, collaboratively, and effectively.

You will gain knowledge in core subject areas—like business, humanities, STEM, and the arts—and will apply that knowledge through hands-on experiences. Bright College focuses on transferable skills like critical thinking, systems literacy, intercultural understanding, collaborative problem-solving and effective communication.  

Choose one of two full-time degree programs, specially designed for commuter students in Central Iowa with family, community, and employment responsibilities beyond school.

Associate of Arts degree in Business, Organization, and Professional Studies (BOPS)
Full-time, 2 years
60 credit hours

Associate of Arts degree in Integrated Arts, Sciences, and Humaities (IASH)
Full-time, 2 years
60 credit hours

Graduates from Bright College will be prepared to enter the professional workforce as creative thinkers and leaders or to continue their education by completing four-year degrees—or both.
