HAMLET — Richmond Community College and Queens University of Charlotte have signed a partnership agreement that will make certain transfers seamless between the community college and the four-year institution. 

The articulation agreement, a formal partnership between at least two institutions of higher education, allows RichmondCC graduates of the Human Services Technology associate degree program to transfer 64 credits toward the Queens’ Bachelor of Arts in Human Services. This is half the credits required to complete the bachelor’s degree.

“The transfer pathway with Queens University saves our students time and money as they pursue an advanced degree,” RichmondCC’s Director of Career & Transfer Services Patsy Stanley said. “Because of this partnership with Queens University, we will be able to help more students earn the credentials and education they need to pursue a career in the human services profession.” 

Human services-related job growth is expected to be more than 13 percent through 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Jobs in the human services field can be found in mental health, child care, family services, social services, rehabilitation, correction and educational agencies.
