The agreement creates a streamlined route from Fleming’s General Arts and Science-University Transfer program to Brock’s Bachelor of Education (BEd) in Adult Education program. Eligible students will receive five credits toward a 15-credit BEd degree, making it possible for full-time students to complete the program in two years instead of three. The program is also offered part time.
The pathway is available to alumni of Fleming’s transfer program who graduated as far back as 2004.
“Brock University is always looking for ways to enhance program options for students, whether they’re in the beginning stages of their academic journey or returning to further develop their skills in support of their career,” said Interim President and Vice-Chancellor Lynn Wells. “Through our partnership with Fleming College, we’re pleased to offer this new pathway to expand opportunities for Brock learners.”
Brock’s Adult Education courses are offered online. Those with a certificate or degree in Adult Education can work in corporate training, college and post-secondary institutions, and health-care and management programs. Others may be developing their knowledge and skills in workplace settings such as teaching, coaching, mentoring, training and adult skill development.
“Supporting students is our priority, whether they are furthering their education immediately after graduation or pursuing a new adventure years after leaving us to enhance their careers,” said Fleming College President Maureen Adamson. “We are proud to be working with Brock University to offer our students more opportunities to achieve a degree.”
