Palmer, Bethune-Cookman University sign dual-degree pact
Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach and Palmer College’s Florida Campus in Port Orange have signed a dual-degree program agreement to better help students attain their degrees and foster cooperation between the two institutions.
Bethune-Cookman Interim President Edison Jackson, Ed. D., and Florida Campus President Peter Martin, D.C., signed the agreements on June 14.
Beginning with the first semester of 2012-2013, a dual-degree program leading to a bachelor’s degree in science with an emphasis on biology or chemistry from Bethune-Cookman University and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Palmer College will be available to qualified students.
"The signing of this articulation agreement with the outstanding Palmer College of Chiropractic is a wonderful opportunity for Bethune-Cookman University," Mr. Jackson said. "Not only is this the beginning of a valuable community partnership, but this agreement serves as a terrific enhancement to the growing academic programs we are able to offer our students."
