Brookdale Community College and the University of Phoenix said Sept. 13 they entered into an articulation agreement to give Brookdale graduates a pathway to bachelor’s degrees in information technology, nursing, criminal justice, business and management programs.
“This new articulation agreement with Brookdale Community College opens up opportunities for students to earn degrees in several high-demand, popular professions,” said the University of Phoenix Provost John Woods in a prepared statement. “Our goal is to help students get started on the right career track in the most efficient and affordable way; this agreement is a step in that direction.”
UOPX will allow Brookdale graduates who are admitted to UOPX to transfer to 87 credits to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
“The agreement with University of Phoenix provides a significant number of credits applied to the baccalaureate program,” said Sarah McElroy, executive director of career and transfer pathways at Brookdale. “Brookdale is pleased to provide our graduates with the opportunity to transfer to University of Phoenix to advance in these high-demand fields.”
According to US News, informational technology and nursing professions account for four of the top 10 best jobs in the country.
