Qualified HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, graduates will soon be able to enter a bachelor’s degree program in leadership and organizational management at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) at Lancaster.
HACC President John J. “Ski” Sygielski, Ed.D., and EMU at Lancaster Associate Provost Mary L. Jensen will sign an articulation agreement 11 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 5, at HACC’s Lancaster campus, East Building, room 202.
Upon successful completion of an associate of applied science (AAS) or associate of science (AS) degree, HACC graduates who meet all admission and application requirements will be guaranteed transfer of 60-80 credits into EMU at the university’s bachelor of science degree program in leadership and organizational management.
The degree can be completed in 15 months by attending class one night a week. Coursework and skillbuilding highlights topics of leadership formation, human dynamics and organizational behavior for business and public administration.
This is the second articulation agreement between the two institutions. An agreement in September 2017 ensures transfer of credit for HACC nursing graduates into EMU at Lancaster’s bachelor of science in nursing program.
