Officials from SUNY Orange and St. John’s University formalized an agreement today that paves the way for graduates of SUNY Orange’s new two-year cyber security degree program to acquire a bachelor’s degree in computer security systems from St. John’s in the minimum amount of time.
The agreement, signed by College President Dr. William Richards and St. John’s University Provost Dr. Julia A. Upton, RSM, also facilitates the transfer of credits to the computer science program at St. John’s for graduates of SUNY Orange’s web development and computer science degree programs. In addition, students who graduate from SUNY Orange’s networking program will be able to transfer smoothly to the networking and telecommunications bachelor’s degree program at St. John’s.
SUNY Orange’s cyber security, networking, web development and computer science degrees--all overseen by the College’s Applied Technologies Department--prepare students for employment in a wide variety of in-demand careers. This new articulation agreement with St. John’s and its College of Professional Studies establishes a formal framework for SUNY Orange graduates to easily progress toward a bachelor’s degree if they so choose.
