“Our mission is to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve through education,” Dr. Tuesday Stanley, WCCC president, said. “This agreement with Duquesne is another step forward for the college, the county and, most importantly, the students. We are proud of what this offers them.”

WCCC students will be admitted as juniors upon successful completion of an associate degree in either the arts or sciences and satisfactory completion of the admission requirements of the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts. WCCC students will receive 60 transfer credits toward the Duquesne Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

Students can choose from 30 undergraduate liberal arts majors and minors, including computer science, digital media arts, English, integrated marketing communication, international security studies and psychology, among others.

“We are thrilled to partner with WCCC and we’ll continue to establish these agreements to help students wanting to continue their liberal arts education at Duquesne,” Debra Zugates, director of undergraduate admissions, said. “We look forward to forging new partnerships with other community colleges in the future.”
