Academic Overview

Liberal Arts

The mission of the Liberal Arts Program is to provide students with a breadth of program offerings that permit them to acquire a thorough, historical, and theoretical foundation in their chosen field of study. Liberal Arts students may focus their program in the following concentration areas: English, History/Government, Humanities, Mathematics, Psychology, Sociology, Behavioral Science, or the Social Sciences.

The Liberal Arts represent the fundamental fields of study for all educated people. Since the middle ages, when knowledge began to be widely distributed, free inquiry grounded in rational thought was the hallmark of a democratic society. At Quincy College, we still hold to the idea that all well-educated men and women can fully participate in civil society if they have the skills and information offered in a program in Liberal Arts. The Liberal Arts have this dedication to developing critical thinking skills in common, which will serve graduates in the new economy. Whatever your concentration, you will graduate equipped with the ability to make critical judgments, communicate in writing and orally, and work in a culturally diverse and historically specific moment of world globalization and interconnectedness.

With an associate degree in Liberal Arts, transferring to a four-year college or university is the next natural step in your education, but an AA can also serve as a certification of your readiness to move into a career. English majors can become journalists, copywriters, or editors. Sociologists can work as market researchers, corporate consultants, or non-profits. Government and history majors can run political campaigns or get involved in city planning. Psychologists can move into education, coaching, or school counseling. Mathematicians can develop into engineers or bankers. The number one skill employers say they are looking for in today’s tough job market is communication. A degree in Liberal Arts will give you confidence in your abilities to speak and write in a professional context.


 

Natural & Health Sciences

Rapid advances in science and technology require the nation to address a critical need to remain competitive in a global age. As the college becomes more integrated into a global economy, education in math and science is crucial to ensure innovation, technological savvy, and a spirit of entrepreneurship thrives.

Quincy College offers challenging and dynamic degree programs in Natural Science and Mathematics whose goal is to provide a clear path to transfer to a four-year institution.  The college also offers degrees in Biotechnology and Compliance, Medical Lab Technology, and Exercise Science.  These are tailored to place students in exciting careers in the pharmaceutical and health industries.  Additionally, the college offers nine-month certificate programs in Phlebotomy, Surgical Technology, Exercise Science, and Biotechnology and Compliance.  These are designed to give students rapid access to the job market in these crucial skill sets.

Take advantage of our science courses and the wealth of experience our science instructors bring to the classroom. Whether you are fulfilling the College core or laying the groundwork for a career in the sciences or healthcare, their unique perspectives add a dimension to the subject matter that can bring it to life. In addition to dedicated full-time faculty, the College has part-time science instructors who are physicians, research scientists, and healthcare professionals teaching at Quincy College and applying their real-life knowledge to the subjects they teach. So take a course or two and see for yourself how science affects us all!


 

Nursing

The Mission of the Academic Division of Nursing is congruent with the mission, values, and goals of Quincy College.  The nursing program’s mission is to prepare each graduate for success on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX®) to ensure graduates safely practice nursing with professional competence and care holistically for individuals from culturally diverse backgrounds. The graduate will function as an integral inter-professional team member with a commitment to educational advancement and lifelong learning.


 

Online

Quincy College currently offers over 25 courses fully online. Online courses are completed at a time and place convenient for the student; there is no requirement to attend any classes on campus. Typically, online courses require more reading and writing than a similar course offered on campus.


 

Plymouth Campus

With nearly 1,200 students, Quincy College in Plymouth is home to an array of accredited programs, including Liberal Arts, Natural and Health Sciences, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, and Web Development, to name just a few. The Plymouth campus is soon home to the first synthetic cadaver, a SynDeaver-SynDaver, in Southeastern Massachusetts. Students will gain a unique perspective of human anatomy using this new, state-of-the-art technology. The Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program is exclusively located at the Plymouth campus. Like our Quincy campus, Quincy College Plymouth offers a traditional 15-week semester, flex semesters of 5, 7, and 9 weeks plus our online and hybrid courses. In the near future, we will launch a certificate in Computer Science and Massachusetts’ first ever shellfish Aquaculture Certificate.


 

Professional Programs

Are you looking for an education that will prepare you for a new career? Whether you want to earn a certificate or Associates degree to enter the workforce or earn an Associates degree to transfer to a four-year college, the Academic Division of Professional Programs may have the program for you! We offer a variety of programs designed to provide students with the education and training to begin working in careers upon graduation or to transfer credits to a four-year college to pursue a Bachelors degree.

Programs offering entry to careers in the business world include Accounting, Business Management, Health Care Administration, and Medical Coding and Billing. Looking to start a career in Information Technology or other computer-related fields? Computers not only have changed the world in which we live; the field of Computer Science is constantly changing, and we are excited about the new developments in our most recent Computer Science majors in Networking and Media Arts. For students interested in law-related fields, we offer both Criminal Justice and Paralegal studies programs. Interested in working with children? We offer a program in Early Childhood Education. And for those interested in social work, our Human Services program is the place to start your career. We invite you to contact faculty members in your program area to answer any questions you may have.
