Fairleigh Dickinson, Warren Community College Partnership Brings New Opportunities to County
TEANECK, NJ (April 29, 2004) – Fairleigh Dickinson University has entered a partnership with Warren County Community College that allows county residents to earn a bachelor’s or master’s degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University at their own community college.
Students who have earned an associate’s degree and are interested in a career in criminal justice will be able to earn a bachelor of arts in individualized studies with a concentration in criminal justice. Those holding at least a bachelor’s degree in the educational field will have the opportunity to earn a master of arts degree in educational leadership (principal certification) or complete a 12-credit supervisor certificate program. Students taking FDU courses at WCCC will be receive a 40% discount from the FDU on-campus per-credit rate.
Dr. J. Michael Adams, president of Fairleigh Dickinson University, and Dr. William Austin, president of Warren County Community College, signed the partnership agreement on WRNJ Radio’s Newsline program on April 22. Adams sees this partnership with Warren County Community College as providing new and exciting educational opportunities.
“Close to home and work,” he said, “the partnership will allow area residents to complete upper division courses that are required for select Fairleigh Dickinson degree programs on their own community college campus.”
WCCC’s Austin said, “This partnership provides an excellent next step for our criminal justice majors who want to complete their bachelor’s degree at a convenient and familiar location. Similarly, folks who wish to earn an advanced degree in educational leadership will enjoy the flexibility and convenience of taking classes right here in Warren County.”
Community College Partnerships offer a flexible, convenient way for students to earn a degree from FDU while attending classes at one of seven partner schools. In addition to Warren County Community College, the university has partnerships with Atlantic Cape Community College, Burlington County College, Cumberland County College, Gloucester County College, Ocean County College, and Raritan Valley Community College.
