Regis College and Assumption College have joined forces to make a Master of Arts in Heritage Studies more affordable for college students, according to a press release from Regis College.

Through the new partnership, Regis will accept two undergraduate courses in the History baccalaureate degree program at Assumption for credited courses in the Master of Arts in Heritage Studies program. The agreement should save qualified students pursuing the degree around $4,000.

“This agreement provides Assumption undergraduate students an opportunity to benefit from the strengths of two outstanding institutions as they earn a Master’s degree,” said Deborah Kisatsky, chair of the history department at assumption. “Assumption College offers excellent preparation for graduate level work, and Regis has an exceptional graduate program so we are happy to partner with them.”

Regis has similar agreements with other baccalaureate degree programs, but this is the first aimed specifically at humanities and liberal arts students.

“Regis and Assumption are both Catholic institutions of higher education with similar missions and commitment to the liberal arts,” said Dr. Claudia Pouravelis, associate dean of graduate academic affairs at Regis. “Students also gain real world experience through Assumption’s internship and Regis’s field experience, making this a practical as well as a financially favorable arrangement for the student.”
