Morgan State University in Baltimore has become the newest partner in a collaborative effort that will allow students who graduate with associate’s degrees from Prince George’s Community College and Howard Community College to study for bachelor’s degrees in engineering or psychology at the Laurel College Center.
Under the agreement, MSU will be the only institution allowed to offer engineering and psychology programs at the Laurel College Center, where 1,400 students are currently enrolled.
“The signing of this agreement offers a tremendous opportunity for Morgan to collaborate with other institutions of higher learning to deliver instructional services in two highly sought-after fields, providing a pathway to high-paying careers,” said MSU President David Wilson. “Having a Morgan presence at the Laurel College Center expands the educational prospects for Marylanders living in the region.”
MSU will assume responsibility for hiring faculty to teach the courses, providing plans of study for the courses and making available all equipment, instruments, technology and support services needed for student success.
Established in 2001 as a partnership between Howard Community College and Prince George’s Community College, the Laurel College Center offers courses and degree programs for the founding community colleges and the center’s four-year university partners.
