Regis College and Assumption College join forces to make higher education affordableFebruary 25, 2014
Regis College and Assumption College are joining forces in an innovative collaboration to make higher education more affordable for humanities and liberal arts students.
Beginning Fall 2014, Regis will accept two undergraduate courses in the History baccalaureate degree program at Assumption for credited courses in the Master of Arts in Heritage Studies program. Regis has similar agreements with other baccalaureate degree programs, but this is the first aimed specifically at humanities and liberal arts students.
With an estimated savings of $4,000, this agreement makes the Master’s degree more achievable for qualified students. Students will not only save money but earn their degrees more quickly, which could give them an advantage when finding a job.
“Regis and Assumption are both Catholic institutions of higher education with similar missions and commitment to the liberal arts,” said Dr. Claudia Pouravelis, Associate Dean of Graduate Academic Affairs at Regis. “Students also gain real world experience through Assumption’s internship and Regis’s field experience, making this a practical as well as a financially favorable arrangement for the student.”
“This agreement provides Assumption undergraduate students an opportunity to benefit from the strengths of two outstanding institutions as they earn a Master’s degree,” said Deborah Kisatsky, Chair of the History Department at Assumption. “Assumption College offers excellent preparation for graduate level work, and Regis has an exceptional graduate program so we are happy to partner with them.”
