Fleming College Social Service Worker Graduates Eligible for Credits toward a Bachelor of Social Work Degree
Fleming College and Trent University have signed an articulation agreement that grants eligible Fleming Social Service Worker diploma graduates credits towards a Bachelor of Social Work degree at Trent.
Students who have graduated within the last five years are eligible and will be granted six credits (equal to one year of study) entering directly into the second year of Trent’s four-year degree program.
“We are excited for the new opportunities this provides our students,” said Carol Kelsey, Dean of the School of Justice and Community Development at Fleming College. “Many post-secondary students are realizing the benefits of having both a diploma and a degree, and the doors it can open in career advancement. The pathway provides graduates with an option for continuing their education and earning a university degree in their field.”
The Social Service Worker program is a two-year college diploma program with the first three semester classroom-based courses and a block placement (practicum, work experience) in the final semester.
This agreement builds on existing pathways between Fleming College and Trent University that includes programs in Business, Technology, Environmental and Natural Resource Sciences, Health and Wellness and Police Foundations program.
