Students interested in the undergraduate programs may attend Central Connecticut State University full-time or part-time. Part-time study permits a student to keep a full-time day job and enroll in courses in the later afternoon or evening. Full-time students may complete the program in four years. All of our academic programs are highly geared toward career placement and/or making connections with the student current job, through internship and capstone experiences.
Our programs have varying degrees of flexibility through directed electives that are selected with the help of an experienced faculty advisor. This flexibility also allows many transfer courses to be applied to major and general education requirements.
