College Expands Opportunities For Students

September 18, 2017

Bermuda College this week signed off on two articulation agreements that will provide additional options and opportunities for students.

The agreement with Nova Scotia College of Art & Design [NSCAD] allows students in the Art and Design associate degree programme at Bermuda College to transfer all 60 credits of the programme into the third year of the four-year undergraduate degree in NSCAD’s Bachelor of Arts [majoring in Art], Bachelor of Art History, or the Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Design or Fine Arts programmes, provided they maintain a GPA of 2.0.

Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs at Bermuda College, Dr. Phyllis Curtis-Tweed noted this was the second agreement in art and design offered to BC students, the other being the Savannah College of Art & Design in Atlanta..

“We have a lot of talented artists in Bermuda,” she stated. “This agreement with NSCAD provides a wonderful opportunity for our students to pursue their undergraduate degree in two years at a highly reputable institution, in an affordable manner. We’re real excited about this.”

Miami University Articulation Agreement Bermuda September 18 2017

The second articulated agreement with Ohio-based Miami University, is not new but slightly modified, providing students with three options at the Master’s level through an online hybrid model.

Offered through the Professional and Career Education [PACE] Division, Programme Coordinator, Romeo Ruddock said five persons have already graduated from the programme. The three specialist tracks include:

The M.Ed in Special Education with initial teaching certification, designed for individuals who do not currently hold a teaching credential and who wish to become licensed as a Special Education Intervention Specialist; the M.Ed in Special Education with Licensure, for individuals who hold a current teaching credential and who wish to add Special Education licensure while pursuing a Master of Education degree; and the Licensure in Special Education, a non-degree option for individuals who hold a current teaching credential and who wish to add Special Education licensure.

Dr. Curtis-Tweed said, “This agreement with Miami University fills a void here on the Island. We have a dire need for certified personnel in special education who want to contribute to the development of special needs students,” she said. “Both agreements provide options and opportunities for Bermuda’s students.”
