Earn Rutgers University Bachelor's Degree on CCC's Blackwood Campus
Anyone looking to build a Camden County College associate degree into a bachelor's degree from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, will be able to do so on CCC's Blackwood Campus beginning this fall.
Thanks to a new agreement between CCC and Rutgers–Camden, students who have earned an associate degree – or completed approximately 60 credits' worth of collegiate study – will be able to enroll in one of two baccalaureate study tracks. Available are a program leading to a bachelor of arts degree in liberal studies and a program for registered nurses who want to earn a bachelor of science degree in nursing.
"The Rutgers at Camden County College – Blackwood Campus initiative will allow CCC graduates and other area residents to earn a high-quality bachelor's degree while staying close to where they live and work," said CCC President Raymond Yannuzzi. "This degree-completion opportunity is supported by University College at Rutgers–Camden, which offers students convenient ways to further their higher education and advance their career while maintaining a busy lifestyle, and provides the student services and campus life with which CCC alumni already are familiar."
An information session about the new opportunity will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Aug. 1 in the Atrium of the Connector Building on CCC's Blackwood Campus. The campus is located at College Drive and Peter Cheeseman Road in Gloucester Township.
Attendees will be able to meet with Rutgers representatives in the Atrium and discuss program requirements. They also will be able to sign up for Fall 2011 courses.
