WCC, Mars Hill University sign transfer agreement

GOLDSBORO – Wayne Community College’s Criminal Justice Technology graduates can now seamlessly transfer to Mars Hill University to receive a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice.

MHU will accept 56 transfer credit hours from WCC’s classes where the student has earned at least a “C.” Students will then complete 64 credit hours at the university, earning a four-year degree in two years fully online.

“This program is ideal for all students, but especially for working professionals who may not be able to be on campus throughout the week,” said WCC Criminal Justice Technology/Forensic Science Coordinator Hope Bruehl. “The bachelor’s degree program also offers a streamlined route to a master’s degree as long as certain requirements are met.”

WCC’s Criminal Justice Technology students learn about local, state, and federal law enforcement, judicial processes, corrections, and security services. Along with the program’s associate degree is a Criminal Justice Technology/Forensic Science concentration, which focuses on evidence processing and procedures in law enforcement.

“Our Criminal Justice Technology/Forensic Science students can also transfer some of their credit hours to this program, making it ideal for all criminal justice students here at WCC,” Bruehl said.

“This articulation agreement demonstrates our commitment to helping students achieve the educational objectives they need to begin in a career that brings them purpose,” said WCC Dean of Public Safety Angie Blizzard.
