Students pursuing a career in the expanding field of cybersecurity may find their path a little easier to navigate, thanks to a new articulation agreement between Clayton State University (CSU) and Southern Crescent Technical College (SCTC).
Leaders from the two schools met recently to sign the articulation agreement, which allows students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in Cybersecurity from SCTC to seamlessly transfer credits to CSU to complete a Bachelor of Information Technology degree. An additional articulation agreement was also signed during this ceremony allowing students who have completed an Associate of Applied Science degree from SCTC to articulate credits toward a Bachelor of Applied Science in Administrative or Technology Management.
Dr. Irvin Clark, President of Southern Crescent Technical College stated, “We are excited about the opportunities that this agreement offers both our current students and graduates to seamlessly matriculate to Clayton State University. This partnership and the expanded educational pathways it provides demonstrates the commitment both institutions have to creating meaningful educational opportunities for our students. This signed agreement will create seamless pathways contributing to increased workforce development opportunities in the high-demand Cybersecurity career field.”
The new agreement, the latest in a number of such agreements signed by Southern Crescent Technical College with multiple institutions of higher learning, is designed to eliminate obstacles to a baccalaureate education for our students and graduates. Through this and other articulation agreements, Southern Crescent Technical College is working to reduce the likelihood that a student will need to take courses more than once as they pursue a degree in their chosen field.
“We are excited to add Southern Crescent Technical College’s Cybersecurity Associate of Applied Science degree to our growing list of transfer options with Clayton State University,” added Kimberly Register, Vice President for Academic Affairs at Southern Crescent Technical College. “As we strive to expand opportunities to assist our students in reaching their educational goals, these agreements not only benefit our students, but also our institution and the communities we serve by providing affordable and accessible pathways for our graduates who wish to continue their studies to earn a bachelor’s degree.”
