Local colleges working together to help students get fine arts degrees
Two local colleges are working together.
College students at West Kentucky Community and Technical College can transfer into the School of Art and Design at Southern Illinois University.
The agreement, signed on Monday, includes nine specializations within the bachelor of fine arts program.
The president of WKCTC says this will give more credibility to students who want to further their education.
"I know SIU has one of the finest Fine Arts programs in the county," said Dr. Barbara Veazey, President of WKCTC. "For our students to have the recognition they need to find their work credible and worthy of transfer, is a boost for our school."
WKCTC students can enter the bachelor of fine arts degree program, if they meet SIU's admission requirements.
The agreement will allow students to transfer 61 credit hours.
