About BSC

Welcome to Bismarck State College!

Whether you are looking at this catalog for the first time in your college career or using it to double check that you are on track to graduate, the courses found here are a stepping stone to your future.  The classes you choose — whether required or elective — provide you with opportunities you would not have without a college education.

In practical terms, you'll be better off financially, emotionally and physically with a college degree — two-year or four-year degrees, both make a great difference.

Aristotle said, "Education is the best provision for life's journey."  It prepares you to be more than you could without. Nelson Mandela reminded us, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."

Whether your goals are to change the world or to change your life, we are so pleased that you chose BSC to help you get there.
