PLYMOUTH — William James College, the largest psychology education institution in New England, has
announced an “articulation agreement” that allows students from Quincy College, with campuses in Quincy and
Plymouth Massachusetts, to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Human Services at William James
College. Quincy College is one of the first higher education institutions to formally send students into the William
James College bachelor completion program.

“This agreement is a win-win for both institutions of higher learning,” said Marc Abelard, Director of the William
James College Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Human Services Completion Program. “Not only will Quincy
College students have the opportunity to make an easy transition to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the field of
psychology, but William James College looks forward to welcoming these students who may decide to stay and
pursue a graduate degree, which has been our primary offering for 43 years.”
This fall, William James College launched the Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Human Services Completion
Program, the first undergraduate degree in the school’s history. Upon completing an associate’s degree program at
Quincy College, students can now pursue their bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Human Services at William
James’ Newton campus. Students from other area universities and colleges can transfer to William James College
to pursue this degree pathway as well.

“Quincy College empowers students to pursue higher education at every level,” said Mary Burke, Senior Vice
President for Academic Affairs for Quincy College. “As entry level education requirements increase for careers in
psychology, Quincy College has sought to establish articulation agreements creating pathways for our students,
expanding, enhancing and improving educational opportunities, and career outlook for graduates. We are excited
to work with William James as it builds a new degree program.”

Quincy College has bachelor completion agreements with 23 other regional, national and international colleges and
universities supporting a diverse offering of advanced degrees for a wide variety of majors and areas of study.
