Students hoping to earn a bachelor’s degree in Monmouth County have more options and fewer limitations than ever before.

Brookdale has partnered with Georgian Court, NJCU and Rutgers University to offer degree programs, dual admissions, and other benefits to Brookdale graduates and local students.

The Brookdale-Georgian Court University Partnership is located at Brookdale at Hazlet, and offers bachelor’s degrees in Business Administration, English, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Psychology, plus a teacher certification program.  RN to BSN, BSW-Social Work and MBA programs have also been recently added.

The Brookdale-New Jersey City University Partnership is located at NJCU’s new Fort Monmouth campus and serves as home to NJCU’s ten available bachelor’s degree programs and four graduate programs, including MBA, the accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) second degree program, MS Nursing Education, and Graduate School Nurse Certificate.

The Brookdale-Rutgers University Partnership is now located on Brookdale’s main Lincroft Campus LAH 201!  In its 20th year, this growing partnership continues to offer a wide range of undergraduate degree classes and degree programs; Rutgers currently offers seven bachelor’s degree programs through the partnership.

All three partnerships offer university-level courses taught by university faculty at a convenient location. Students receive a Bachelor’s Degree (and may even continue their study into a Master’s Degree program) from the partner institution, and can utilize many of the services and support offered to traditional university students. Many degree programs also offer dual admissions, 3+1 program options, streamlined transfer agreements and other benefits to Brookdale graduates.

These new partnerships – which replaced the NJ Coastal Communiversity – are part of an ongoing college-wide initiative to increase opportunities and streamline the educational experience for students. In addition to these University Partnerships, Brookdale has transfer agreements with over 45 colleges/universities across the state, the country, and even internationally! Please check out the Transfer Resources page for more information!

According to Brookdale’s Dr. Matt Reed, Vice President for Education, “These campus-based partnerships allow the universities to offer the four-year degrees and graduate degrees that local students want. Each campus location will be able to evolve to suit the needs of the students in that area, and offer more choices for students who want to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree close to home.”
