Anderson, Ind. — Anderson University (AU) and Ivy Tech Community College (Ivy Tech) are proud to announce a new articulation agreement in Christian ministries, through which students will have the opportunity to earn a dual degree.
Ivy Tech graduates with an associate of arts or an associate of science degree may transfer and apply a minimum of 60 credit hours from that completed degree to the requirements for Anderson University’s bachelor of arts degree in Christian ministries.
This transfer agreement is available to Ivy Tech students completing any associate of science or associate of arts degree regardless of the degree major. Ivy Tech transfer students will be expected to complete all upper-division core curriculum requirements at Anderson University, in addition to the faith courses built into the Christian ministries major.
“Anderson University and Ivy Tech have a strong, ongoing academic partnership,” Joel Shrock, AU provost. “We are excited to expand our relationship to include this articulation agreement between Ivy Tech‘s associate of arts and associate of science degrees and AU’s Christian ministries major in its bachelor of arts degree.”
“This articulation agreement with Anderson University is especially exciting for students because of its flexibility. Ivy Tech students who earn one of 30 different AS (Associate of Science) degrees or our AA (Associate of Arts) in Liberal Arts, now have a direct pathway to a bachelor’s degree in Christian ministries,” said Dr. Mia D. Johnson, Chancellor for the Ivy Tech’s Anderson campus. This is an unprecedented pathway at Ivy Tech Community College and we are excited to offer this opportunity to our students.”
