Owens Community College, Ohio University partner to offer degreesWritten by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | email@example.com
Owens Community College students can now attend Ohio University without leaving Northwest Ohio.
As a result of the new partnership, Owens students will be able to obtain a bachelor’s degree by completing three years of higher education at Owens followed by one year of academic courses through Ohio University’s distance learning program. Beginning January, the collaboration between Owens and Ohio University will offer individuals, who have earned an associate degree in a technical field from Owens, an opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree. Owens students can obtain a Bachelor of Technical and Applied Sciences degree by maximizing transfer of credits earned from any of the college’s associate of applied science or applied business degree programs. In addition, Owens students who have completed an associate degree in criminal justice can pursue a bachelor’s in that field through Ohio University.
