MATC Students to Benefit from Partnership with Lakeland College
June 29, 2015
Milwaukee Area Technical College students who intend to pursue a bachelor's degree in early childhood education at Lakeland College's Milwaukee Center will benefit from a relationship between the two institutions that is being funded through a Wisconsin Department of Children and Families grant.
The T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood Scholarship Program Articulation Improvement Grant is awarded by the Wisconsin Early Childhood Association and will provide support services for MATC graduates who continue their education at Lakeland.
Other aspects of the program include maximizing the number of MATC credits that transfer to Lakeland; increase Lakeland's presence on MATC's campuses; increase the number of MATC students who transfer to Lakeland; and improve the retention rate of MATC transfer students.
MATC's Early Childhood Education associate degree is offered in English and Spanish. New programs that will launch this fall include a Child Care Services technical diploma and a Preschool certificate.
