Mankato, Minn. – Anoka-Ramsey Community College and Minnesota State University, Mankato will hold a signing ceremony Friday in Coon Rapids, Minn., to celebrate an articulation agreement that allows students to earn degrees from each institution with an emphasis in communications studies.

The signing ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. Friday, March 20 in the Riverview Room at Anoka-Ramsey’s Coon Rapids campus.

The agreement enables students in the program to complete 60 credits as part of their “Associate in Arts with Emphasis in Communications Studies” degree program at Anoka-Ramsey and an additional 60 credits as part of a “Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies” degree program at Minnesota State Mankato.

“We’re very pleased to have established a pathway for Anoka-Ramsey Community College students to transition from an associate’s degree in communications studies to a bachelor’s degree in that same academic area at Minnesota State Mankato,” said Richard Davenport, president at Minnesota State Mankato. “I want to thank Anoka-Ramsey President Kent Hanson for his collaboration on this agreement. It’s a credit to the faculty and administration at both institutions who have worked hard to create this pathway, and it exemplifies the commitment to seeking partnerships that exists among Minnesota state colleges and universities.”

The articulation agreement between the schools facilitates credit transfer and provides a smooth transition from one related program to another.

Students must fulfill admissions and graduation requirements at both institutions.
