Wayne State College

New Programs and Partnerships

Published Thursday, August 30th, 2018

The most recent new program added to Wayne State’s programs of study came about through an agreement with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) for a transfer program in Applied Science.

This agreement allows our students to seamlessly transfer and continue their education in the Applied Science degree program within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources at UNL. A key benefit of the program is that the courses at UNL can be completed online so that Northeast Nebraska students can complete the degree while staying close to home.

The college has also added a number of other new programs during the past two years. These include the Rural Law Opportunities Program (RLOP); online undergraduate options in Criminal Justice, Business Administration, and Human Resources; Fermentation Science; Agricultural Communication and Leadership; Manufacturing Management; Accelerated Nursing in partnership with UNMC; a Masters in Organizational Management degree in Public Administration; and an online Special Education MSE program.

The college’s new partnerships formed during the past two years include agreements with ESU2 for the Pathways2Tomorrow program at West Point and the Mastering the Arts Grant; Metropolitan Community College (MCC) in Omaha to deliver a bachelor of technology degree program; a Memorandum of Understanding regarding in-state tuition with the Island of Curacao; a transfer agreement with Indian Hills Community College; a 2+2 Agricultural and Mechanical Engineering program with UNL; a transfer agreement with Western Iowa Tech Community College (WITCC); and the creation of the Industrial Technology External Advisory Council.
