CCBC and St. Mary’s College ink new deal

CCBC students interested in studying Maryland’s history first hand will now be able to participate in archeological digs on historic sites through an articulation agreement with St. Mary’s College of Maryland. The new agreement allows CCBC students graduating with an associate in Applied Science degree to transfer up to 70 credits into the Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology degree at SMCM.

St. Mary’s College is also encouraging interested and qualified students to participate in SMCM Summer Field Schools on actual “digs” in the St. Mary’s County area while staying their campus. Not only will students gain practical insight on Anthropology as a major, they will receive upper-level credits at St. Mary’s College toward the B.A. in Anthropology requirements. Better yet, students can also transfer those courses back into CCBC to receive six electives toward their associate degree. Students do not have to be an Anthropology major at CCBC to participate.

“Our partnerships with four-year institutions continue to grow,” said CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis. “Working together, we can offer our students so many wonderful opportunities to expand their knowledge and encourage them to move on from their associate degree, continue with studies and earn a bachelor’s degree.”
