Psychology students at Central Lakes College will earn bachelor’s degree credits at St. Cloud State University thanks to an articulation agreement signed July 30 by CLC President Dr. Larry Lundblad. As part of the agreement, the one-hour lab portion of an online St. Cloud State Psychology course will be offered at CLC starting with the fall semester Aug. 23. CLC, the community and technical college in Brainerd and Staples, on Wednesday mornings will host the lab for Applying Psychology. Four credits will count toward the university’s Community Psychology Bachelor of Science degree. Many students at CLC take courses in psychology. The study of psychology is an excellent preparation for further study in numerous fields such as teaching, health care, social service, criminal justice and business. Barbara Vesely, a Brainerd resident, is the SCSU instructor for the university psychology course, one of several she has taught each semester for 19 years. Already providing such opportunities with offerings from the College of St. Scholastica and Bemidji State University, CLC partnerships prepare graduates with the Associate in Arts degree for their junior and senior years at the traditional four-year institutions.
