Delaware Law School partners with Delaware Tech

1/9/2018

Widener University Delaware Law School entered into an articulation agreement with Delaware Technical Community College in November 2017 that will give Delaware Tech students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Legal Studies following their completion of a Criminal Justice Associate Degree at Delaware Tech. The bachelor’s degree from Widener University also carries a paralegal certificate in criminal law as well as a general certificate in paralegal studies.

Under the agreement, students who have completed their associate degree with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher will automatically be accepted into the Legal Studies baccalaureate program at Widener University Delaware Law School, and can transfer up to 57 credits from their associate’s degree to the Legal Studies Program at Widener University Delaware Law School.

“It is an honor to welcome students from Delaware Technical Community College to our Legal Studies Program,” said Assistant Dean and Executive Director for Graduate, International, Compliance, and Legal Studies Eileen Grena-Piretti. “It is an honor to partner with such a great state school.”

At the articulation agreement signing, Delaware Law School Dean Rod Smolla said, “The Widener University Delaware Law School is thrilled to once again sign an articulation agreement with Delaware Tech, as we continue to enlarge the friendship and cooperation between these two Delaware educational institutions. The agreement will be good for both institutions, for our shared students, and for the state of Delaware.”

This agreement is the eighth connected degree program that Delaware Tech has with Widener University in areas such as business, hospitality management, and computer information systems.
