Montreat College’s School of Adult and Graduate Studies (AGS) and Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC) have signed a cybersecurity articulation agreement, opening new pathways for academic advancement for FTCC students.
This collaborative initiative enables FTCC graduates with a Systems Security & Analysis associate degree to seamlessly transition into Montreat College’s nationally recognized Bachelor of Science program in Cybersecurity through Montreat’s AGS program. The articulation agreement reflects the shared commitment of both institutions to empower students with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in the dynamic landscape of cybersecurity.
“This partnership is another positive step towards addressing the growing demand for skilled cybersecurity professionals,” said Dr. Paul Gratton, Interim Vice President for AGS at Montreat College. “We are excited to collaborate with FTCC to provide their graduates with a direct avenue to further their education and prepare them for success in an important and rapidly evolving industry.”
In addition to Dr. Gratton, Dr. Paul J. Maurer, president of Montreat College, and Dr. Robert Roth, Interim Associate Dean for Adult and Graduate Studies, represented Montreat College’s School of Adult and Graduate Studies at the signing on November 21, 2023. Dr. Mark A. Sorrells, president of Fayetteville Technical Community College, also attended the event.
The agreement with FTCC is the third of its kind in two months for Montreat College. In October, Montreat College signed two articulation agreements with Gaston College, a public community college in Dallas, North Carolina.
