SCSU "locates" on Twin Cities campuses
Thursday, October 27, 2005
A new partnership now makes it possible for Anoka-Ramsey Community College students to earn an SCSU bachelor's or master's degree without leaving ARCC campuses in the Twin Cities.
Market research shows that the metro area has many learners who are place-bound by career, family, financial or other constraints. Those students can now complete their first two years at ARCC, then remain on campus to complete the advanced SCSU degree of their choice. Students register, receive financial aid and advising services, and take courses at ARCC, but SCSU faculty members teach the courses and the degrees will come from SCSU.
Current programs, based on metropolitan community needs, are educational leadership and teacher education in special education.
A similar, collaborative program is already offered by SCSU. To earn an SCSU bachelor's degree in education, ARCC students can be simultaneously enrolled at SCSU and take courses in the metro area taught by faculty from both schools.
