Brunswick Community College, located in Bolivia, North Carolina, was founded in 1979 to provide educational opportunities for residents of the area and was originally know as Brunswick Technical Institute. The school changed its name within half a year to Brunswick Technical College, and once again in 1988 to its current name, reflecting changes regarding two year institutions throughout the state. Brunswick Community College is a public institution and member of the North Carolina Community College System which operates institutions offering similar academic and career opportunities throughout the state.
Brunswick Community College offers a variety of programs that allow for career or transfer opportunities. Career training programs provide students the skills and knowledge necessary for a career in a given technical or vocational field, allowing entry into the workforce as a professional immediately after graduation. Career programs take between one and two years to complete and result in a certificate or associate degree. Academic transfer programs allow students to complete the first two years of a four year education, followed by transfer to a four year institution to complete their bachelor's degree. Transfer is facilitated by agreements between the college and state operated public institutions, though transfer is possible to out of state and private schools.
