Degree pathways are formal transfer and articulation agreements between colleges and universities which give college graduates as much as two years of credit toward a degree.
Holland College has more than 90 degree pathways and articulation agreements with post-secondary institutions across the country and around the world.
On the Island, UPEI and the college have 22 degree pathway agreements. For example, graduates of the Holland College Journalism & Communications Program can choose to receive up to 60 credit hours toward a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Journalism.
Other examples of agreements between UPEI and Holland College include tourism & hospitality, business administration, paramedicine, biotechnology, computer science, environmental science, kinesiology, child & youth care worker, and human services.
These agreements are continually renewed and reworked to provide students and graduates with a clearer understanding of the entrance requirements.
“Student mobility is becoming extremely important to post-secondary students,” says Bo Ford, Academic Pathways Advisor at Holland College. “Our Degree Pathways allow students to receive the practical skills and experience required for their field, while providing a seamless transfer of academic credits to our partnering institutions to further their education.”
