Points of Interest

New bachelor programs

Edmonds' fifth BAS degree in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence BAS (ROBAI-BAS) will launch starting in the fall of 2024. All of the college's BAS programs are designed to be convenient for working adults, with classes held in a hybrid online/in-person format that often meets in the evenings and on weekends. 

Supporting changing workforce needs

The college's new Center for AI and Data Science Learning and Innovation was established to serve as an incubator for AI readiness for the Edmonds community. In 2024, Edmonds will celebrate the launch of The Center for Industry Certification to meet the upskilling needs of workers and employers across diverse industries. In Edmonds' flexible learning classes, students choose how to attend and participate in class, whether it be in person or online, synchronously or asynchronously. This approach provides students with ultimate flexibility to pursue their education while working or caring for family. This year, the college piloted 60 flexible learning courses, outfitted six classrooms for HyFlex hybrid teaching delivery and trained 46 faculty.  

Medical assistant program

The medical assistant program is the latest addition under the Allied Health Education umbrella, joining medical lab sciences, patient care services, pharmacy practice, behavioral health, and health care management. The entry-level medical assistant program is designed for working adults and those changing careers. Classes are held in the evening and some are held online. Certificates can be completed in as little as nine months.
