Starting this fall, the Bachelor of Arts in Management program will be taught on the Shoreline campus by CityU faculty — experts who work in the subjects they teach. Students preparing for the program can chart their own future by receiving dual admission to both Shoreline and CityU. Students start with Shoreline classes, then seamlessly transfer up to 90 credits from Shoreline or another community/technical college for use toward their bachelor’s degree.
