During this upcoming spring semester, Bloomfield College students will have the unique opportunity to take online courses in the Humanities at various independent colleges across the nation.

This is thanks to Bloomfield College being a part of a Consortium of Independent Colleges (CIC), which is dedicated to improving the effectiveness of online humanities teaching and learning.
