edXMicroBachelors Programs by edX®

Thomas Edison State University is a proud partner and provider of college credit for the newly announced MicroBachelors programs created by edX. These programs will be the first credit-backed stackable credential, marking a significant milestone in online learning and will deliver immediately transferable skills to meet the real-world needs of employers, while providing a pathway to a full Bachelor’s degree.

MicroBachelors programs are designed for adults without a college degree who believe they need additional education to advance in their careers. This group, like the majority of Americans, cannot afford a traditional Bachelor’s degree and cannot take the time away from work to pursue one. Additionally, the rate at which technological change is affecting the global workforce means that adults need immediately transferable skills that can be delivered in months, not years.

Breaking down the barriers of time and money, MicroBachelors programs are affordable, priced between $500 and $1,500 (roughly $166 per credit), and can be completed fully online, allowing working adults to complete the coursework on their own schedule. The programs are independently valuable as the rigorous content is created by academic institutions with input from industry leaders to deliver immediately transferable skills for the workplace. In addition, since some of the programs are backed by TESU credit, once earned, learners can elect to receive a TESU transcript signifying progression toward a full Bachelor’s degree.

edX will be announcing additional MicroBachelors programs and new credit pathways that stack into full degree options in the future, and you can view all currently evaluated, and credit-bearing MicroBachelor programs here.
