Bachelor's Degree Programs


Lake Tahoe Community College has partnered with Sierra Nevada College, Brandman University and Washington State University Global Campus to offer competitively priced degree options that can be earned on LTCC's South Shore campus! Through our University Partners, students can earn degrees in global business management, psychology, liberal studies, applied studies, hospitality business management, a master’s in education, and earn multiple discipline teaching credentials.

Designed as the hub for access to higher education, the Lisa Maloff University Center brings the most modern and effective instructional, multimedia and telecommunications equipment to engage students with. The design of the 7000-square-foot University Center weaves mountain modern elements and upscale touches with abundant natural light to create bright and airy spaces for students to gather. In addition to the classrooms, the building offers a breakout room that can be utilized by students enrolled in classes at the University Center.

Brandman University LogoIn March 2018, LTCC added Brandman University, a private non-profit institution, as a partner to offer a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies starting Fall 2018. This program prepares students to enter into a multiple subject or special education teaching credential, providing a pathway for local students to achieve both the degree and credential needed to become a teacher. Brandman University has a liberal transfer policy to help you transfer credits from LTCC and other WASC-accredited institutions. The goal is to prepare you to finish your BA degree in two years or less, so you can move quickly into the teacher credentialing program. 

Brandman University is offering this new degree pathway with a scholarship in the form of a tuition discount for all LTCC students and alums. Students can earn this degree for as little as $14,400 and up to $23,000 depending on how many units they earn through LTCC, their eligibility for further financial aid and scholarships, and other factors.

  • Applied Studies (pathway to teaching credential) / Bachelor of Arts
