Saint Martin’s is expanding its degree programs offered at Centralia College, officials announced.
Right now, Centralia students can pursue bachelor’s degrees from Saint Martin’s in elementary education and criminal justice.
This fall, Centralia students also will be able to work toward a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Saint Martin’s will also offer a teacher certification-only program and added endorsements for elementary and middle school teachers, officials said.
“Students in the criminal justice, education and accounting programs spend the first two years as Centralia College students and pay Centralia College tuition,” said Cruz Arroyo, director of Saint Martin’s Extended Learning Campuses. “They then finish out the final two years as Saint Martin’s University students but continue to take courses on the Centralia College campus, saving on travel costs and time.”
Saint Martin’s and Centralia officials signed a new memorandum of understanding about the partnership at a ceremony held on the Centralia campus late last week.
