Partnership Between UM and Dickinson College in PA to Facilitate Priority Admission to UM's Master of Arts in Global Policy

The University of Maine President Robert Kennedy, and the Dickinson College President William Durden, have signed an articulation agreement to formalize academic collaboration in areas of mutual strength and interest.  The new arrangement will facilitate priority admission of Dickinson students into the UMaine Master of Arts in Global Policy program in the School of Policy and International Affairs (SPIA).

Beginning in the fall of 2011, eligible Dickinson graduates can begin academically preparing for a fifth-year Master’s of Global Policy degree at UMaine, which they could earn in 15 months of graduate study, according to Jim Settele, assistant director of SPIA. Dickinson students who are conditionally accepted into the program would take courses during their senior year that would be applied toward the master’s degree upon matriculation at UMaine. Similarly, UMaine students interested in pursing a master’s in global policy through SPIA also could begin preparing as undergraduates for the “four-plus-one” program.
