Richland College recently partnered with New England College to offer an easy transition for Richland students interested in earning a bachelor’s degree in cyber security, and an information session is being offered for students to learn more about this opportunity.

The information session will be 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, in Sabine Hall, room SH117.

This unique opportunity will allow students to get into a bachelor’s degree program without having to leave Richland College. NEC faculty will teach bachelor-level courses on-site at Richland, and NEC will accept all 60 credits students earned in their Dallas County Community College District associate degrees. Additionally, there is a potential for transferring up to 30 more credits through additional coursework or prior learning assessments.

Designed for busy schedules, this hybrid program will only meet at Richland College one night per week. More information about this program is available here.

Richland College recently signed a four-year agreement with Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, allowing business students the opportunity to achieve a bachelor’s degree in Scotland upon completion of their associate degree at Richland College.

“Our partnership with Robert Gordon University provides our students with the ability to get a truly global degree,” said Chip Izard, program administrator of international business and trade programs at Richland College. “Once students complete their AAS in International Business and Trade at Richland, they can finish their bachelor’s degree in Scotland.”

Currently the program is open to students who meet minimum GPA requirements and graduate from Richland College with an associate degree in international business and trade. However, other degree programs are currently being reviewed for possible inclusion, including accounting and travel and tourism. Students who successfully apply and are accepted into the program then travel to Robert Gordon University in Scotland, where they can complete their bachelor’s degree in approximately one year.

Richland College students interested in this program should visit their career technical advisors. For more information on Richland College’s International Business and Trade program, visit richlandcollege.edu/ibt.
