BLUEFIELD (NEWS RELEASE) - As the Fall 2013 Semester approaches, students at Bluefield State College will have a wider range of academic options.  BSC has entered into partnerships with other institutions of higher education by which students' opportunities to earn baccalaureate degrees have been significantly expanded, according to BSC President Marsha Krotseng. 

During the 2012-13 academic year, the W. Paul Cole, Jr. School of Business at BSC signed separate articulation agreements with Wytheville Community College, Southwest Virginia Community College, and Virginia Western Community College that will result in a seamless and cost-effective transition between the institutions for students majoring in business programs.  Dr. Steve Bourne, Dean of the Cole School of Business, was instrumental in the development of these articulations and noted, "These agreements are beneficial to both BSC and to our partner institutions.  We offer numerous online classes with live streaming, and many students who have work or family obligations that would make it impossible for them to attend classes on campus at BSC are now able to obtain a baccalaureate degree from Bluefield State."

In addition, BSC and Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for the delivery of a bachelor's degree program in Radiologic Sciences.  "This is a win-win for everyone, including the healthcare providers and residents of southern West Virginia who will benefit from the increased skills our graduates will gain," Dr. Krotseng added.  Students in BSC's Bachelor of Science program in Imaging Sciences will also be afforded the opportunity to take transient courses in Computed Tomography through SWVCTC and transfer to BSC as part of the B.S. Imaging Sciences degree credits.

Last summer, BSC and New River Community and Technical College signed a MOU for an Elementary Education collaborative program.  Qualifying NRCTC students can now transfer seamlessly into BSC's School of Education and complete their coursework for a baccalaureate degree close to home.

BSC's collaborative initiatives also extend to an innovative partnership as an academic affiliate with Regis College in Boston, MA.  BSC Radiologic Technology graduate Ryan Farmer was accepted into the Regis program and will attend this fall as a BSC student, beginning studies in a bachelor's program to obtain a degree in Radiologic Sciences with a concentration in Nuclear Medicine.  BSC students in the program will also participate in clinical rotations at one of the Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals.
