HCHC Launches New Partnership With Leading University
Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology proudly announces an exciting new partnership with Regis College, a leading Roman Catholic university just outside Boston. Founded in 1927, the private institution is substantially larger than HCHC, with close to 2,000 undergraduate and graduate students, yet shares a similar tradition of academic excellence grounded in faith. The new partnership will allow Hellenic College students to gain access to three Regis master’s degree programs in such a way as to make possible the earning of a graduate degree in one year rather than the customary two years.
Beginning next semester (spring 2018), Hellenic undergraduates in the Elementary Education program will have preferred admission into the Regis master’s program in Special Education and begin taking classes toward the master’s degree during their final year at Hellenic, with only one year at Regis needed thereafter to complete the MA.
Hellenic College students majoring in Human Development will have preferred admission to the Regis Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology program, also beginning classes toward the MA at Regis during their final undergraduate year here, allowing them to earn the graduate degree with only one additional year of study.
Hellenic College students in the four other undergraduate programs currently offered—Classics and Greek Studies, Literature and History, Management and Leadership, and Religious Studies—will have preferred admission to the Regis Master of Arts in Heritage Studies program. They too will be able to take advantage of the combined, accelerated five-year BA/MA option.
In addition, qualified Hellenic College students can now register for certain science courses at Regis, including biology, chemistry, and physics, ultimately strengthening their candidacy for health-related master’s programs.
