New STEM and Nursing Building

In 2020, Edmonds College opened Hazel Miller Hall, a 70,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and nursing.

Bachelor of Applied Science Degrees

Edmonds College now offers Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degrees. Compared to other four-year degrees, BAS degrees are more career-focused, have more hands-on training, build more on work experience, and are more affordable. Our BAS programs are also designed to be convenient for working adults. Classes are held in a hybrid online/in-person format and often meet in the evenings and on weekends.

National Leader in Cyber Defense Education

Edmonds College has been designated a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security and is certified through the 2022 academic year. Edmonds College strives to align its cybersecurity curriculum with industry demands in order to fill a critical workforce shortage of information security professionals. The college offers a certificate in cybersecurity, and an Associate of Technical Arts degree in Information Security and Digital Forensics that articulates to a bachelor’s degree program in Information Systems Security from Western Washington University.
