Goddard College Partnership

Birthwise Midwifery School is in partnership with Goddard College to offer Birthwise students an affordable, flexible and fast pathway to a bachelor’s degree. You can translate the wealth of knowledge you gain in your midwifery studies into college credit at Goddard.

Goddard College offers low-residency bachelor’s degree programs in three locations across the United States. You can apply to Goddard’s BA in Health Arts & Sciences or Individualized BA before, during or after you complete your Birthwise Midwifery Program courses. Goddard has locations in Plainfield, Vermont, Port Townsend, Washington, and Seattle, Washington.

Goddard College

Low-residency education

Similarly to Birthwise’s Community Option, Goddard College’s low-residency education offers the best of what distance education, online programs and traditional campus learning offer. You study from home while also being part of a living, breathing campus of learners, faculty, staff and alumni — the larger community of Goddard College. The program offers:

  • The flexibility to pursue a degree without uprooting or disrupting your life.
  • Eight days of intense study per semester in a community of your peers.
  • Individualized education that intimately connects the life you’re living with what you’re learning, and study that is directly relevant to the life you want to live.

Transfer your Birthwise credits

We developed this partnership to help Birthwise students and graduates meet their larger education goals. You can translate your Birthwise hours into college credit at Goddard:

  • 45 semester hours from the Campus Option or
  • 40 semester hours from the Community Option

You can also transfer credit from other colleges — up to a total of 75 credits from all schools. You may be able to complete your bachelor’s degree at Goddard College in just three semesters.

If you already have a bachelor’s degree, you may be able to apply your credits toward Goddard’s accelerated MA in Health Arts & Sciences 

Available scholarships

Birthwise graduates who are accepted into the BA in Health Arts & Sciences or Individualized BA programs are eligible for a $1,000 scholarship from Goddard.
