Washington Adventist University is proud to announce a formal articulation agreement with Montgomery College. This means that students who graduate with an Associate of Arts degree in Communication Studies from Montgomery College can seamlessly enroll in a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication at WAU. WAU’s Communication degree has concentrations in Public Relations and Inter-Cultural Communication. Both institutions have agreed upon admission, transfer credit and degree requirements. This formal arrangement allows Montgomery College to advise their students with WAU’s program requirements in view. The benefit of such an arrangement for Montgomery College is that it provides another educational opportunity for its graduates who meet the academic requirements to be automatically accepted by WAU. The benefit for Washington Adventist University is that this agreement widens the pool of potential students who may like to further their studies here.
Washington Adventist University looks forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Montgomery College. This articulation agreement is an indication of the vigorous efforts WAU is making to establish such partnerships with area educational institutions. This type of relationship allows WAU the opportunity for greater influence on students whom it might not otherwise have the privilege of serving. This arrangement is in keeping with the university’s mission of being “a learning community committed to the Seventh-day Adventist Christian vision of excellence and service. This cosmopolitan institution challenges students to seize the opportunities for learning in the nation’s capital in order to become moral leaders in communities throughout the world.”
