Mount Allison University and Nova Scotia Community College have partnered to create a new pathway for social services students. Starting this Fall, eligible graduates of NSCC’s Social Services Diploma program will be able to enter MtA’s Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Sociology Degree with advanced standing with up to 60 transfer credits. The pathway will allow NSCC graduates to complete a bachelor’s degree with an additional two years of study. “These types of agreements make it easier for students to gain both academic credentials and practical experience,” said MtA Provost and Vice-President, Academic and Research Dr Jeff Hennessy. “We are pleased to enter this new partnership with NSCC and look forward to welcoming students looking to continue their education in sociology.” MtA Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
