Immaculata and Widener Universities Expand Partnership to Offer Accelerated Master's Degrees

IMMACULATA, PA — Immaculata University and Widener University have expanded their articulation agreement to give Immaculata students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree from Immaculata and continue into a master’s degree in three popular programs from Widener University during their senior year.

The master’s programs are Master of Social Work (MSW), Master of Science in Criminal Justice (MCJ) and a Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) with concentrations in chemical and biomedical engineering.

Under the agreement, Immaculata students will be admitted to Widener University after completing their junior year of undergraduate study at Immaculata. Students from Immaculata’s social work, sociology or psychology programs can enroll in the MSW and receive guaranteed admission to Widener’s program and an annual full-time scholarship. Immaculata’s criminology majors are eligible for guaranteed admission to the MCJ program and an annual part-time scholarship.

Students in Immaculata’s chemistry and biology programs may apply to the MSE program, which provides a partial waiver toward full-time tuition once students have completed prerequisite courses.

“Immaculata University strives to expand our academic partnerships for current and prospective students. By leveraging the expertise from each institution, Immaculata and Widener University are creating a seamless pathway for students to continue graduate study in social work, engineering and criminal justice,” states Angela Tekely, Ed.D., provost & vice president for Academic Affairs at Immaculata University.

“We are pleased to expand the articulation agreement Widener has with Immaculata,” said Kim O’Halloran, Ph.D., associate provost and dean for Graduate Studies & Extended Learning at Widener University. “These are three exciting areas of study and a master’s-level degree will add value for students who are looking to gain a career edge in their chosen fields.”
