Bastyr University, Cascadia Community College announce partnership

Thursday, January 26, 2012

In an effort to increase opportunities for students seeking baccalaureate degrees in the natural health arts and sciences, the presidents of Bastyr University and Cascadia Community College today announced an agreement that will help propel students through the higher education pipeline in the form of smoother transfers between the two schools.

"This is a perfect example of how educational institutions can work together to expand opportunities and services for their students," says Eric Murray, PhD, president of Cascadia Community College. "In this case, we are making it possible for community college students who matriculate with a two-year degree at Cascadia and meet Bastyr University's requirements to transfer to one of the most highly respected natural medicine universities in the world."

The signed agreement opens up a whole new pathway for students who are interested in pursuing a career in this region's growing natural health industry.

The agreement allows Cascadia students who complete the prescribed coursework and receive an Associate in Integrated Studies degree to transfer directly to Bastyr University, where they can pursue a Bachelor of Science in Health Psychology, Herbal Sciences, Exercise Science and Wellness, Integrated Human Biology or Nutrition. Alternately, students who need to complete specific courses to be eligible for their junior year at Bastyr University will be able to transfer after completing those courses at Cascadia.
