Anne Arundel Community College is partnering with Villa Julie College to offer AACC human services graduates an opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree in family and community services from Villa Julie College.
Effective fall 2004, the articulation agreement allows AACC human services graduates to transfer up to 70 credit hours toward the 120-credit-hour Bachelor of Science degree in family and community services at Villa Julie.
“We’re excited about this opportunity for our human services graduates to continue their education without losing any credits. The ability to transfer up to 70 academic credits is a real advantage for our students,” said Elizabeth H. Appel, AACC’s department chair and associate professor of human services.
AACC’s Associate of Applied Science degree in human services requires students to complete at least 61 credit hours, including three fieldwork experiences, each reflecting 100 unpaid clinical hours.
Villa Julie’s program prepares students for careers in human services and/or graduate school in such programs as counseling, social work, school counseling, human services and marriage and family therapy. It also includes hands-on experiences in the form of internships and a practicum in community services.
Villa Julie College, based in Stevenson, Md., is Maryland's third largest independent college and offers a career-focused education to nearly 2,500 undergraduates.
A coeducational independent college, Villa Julie is a member of the AACC University Consortium. Degrees offered by consortium partners link with AACC associate degree and certificate programs so students can continue their education without losing credits when transferring. Other consortium members are the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, McDaniel College and the University of Maryland University College.
