As the result of a unique partnership agreement, Cazenovia College will now be offering classes leading to a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice and Homeland Security at Erie Community College’s North Campus, ECC President Jack Quinn announced Friday.
This partnership will allow graduates of ECC’s Criminal Justice programs to continue their education and earn a bachelor’s degree in a setting that is already familiar to them.
“The program is designed to be affordable, convenient, and fit the busy lifestyles of today’s students,” said Cazenovia College’s Vice President for Academic Affairs Donald McCrimmon. “Better still, is the fact that a four-year degree from Cazenovia, ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of “America’s Best Colleges,” puts students in an advantageous position. Criminal Justice is a growing field and in today’s job market, that’s an important factor.”
Classes will be offered during evenings and weekends starting in fall 2011.
“ECC prides itself by staying on the cutting edge of today’s ever-changing ways to offer educational opportunities to our students. This unique partnership allows ECC students to stay right at their home campus and obtain a bachelor’s degree in an excellent program offered by Cazenovia College. Partnerships like these are one of many educational pathways ECC offers to our students,” Quinn said.
