~ ~ ~UCC Degrees Get Official Stamp of Approval All the eligible degree programmes offered by the University College of the Caribbean (UCC) have recently received the official stamp of approval from the University Council of Jamaica (UCJ), the government’s quality assurance body for higher educational institutions in Jamaica. In welcoming this important milestone, UCC Executive Chairman and President, Winston Adams said it “will undoubtedly increase the marketability of the thousands of past and future graduates of UCC.” He added that the granting of full programmatic accreditation was “an expression of the continued confidence in the institution’s missions and goals, the quality of our faculty and students, our academic programmes and the level and appropriateness of our resources to deliver quality programmes.” Vice-President of Academic and Student Affairs, Dr. Grace Turner said this latest accreditation of UCC’s degree programmes will result in several benefits to students. “Government employees who study with us will be able to receive financial assistance from the government,” she noted. “A second benefit to UCC students is that they will now be able to receive financial aid from the Students’ Loan Bureau, which does not fund studies at institutions that are not listed as having accredited programmes,” Dr Turner disclosed. A third benefit, she suggested, was that UCC graduates who have been denied promotion. in government agencies, because their programmes of study were not yet accredited, may now be eligible to receive their promotions and any increments due. Dr Turner also noted that programmatic accreditation now made it much easier for UCC graduates to transfer credits and articulate into masters degree programmes offered by other local or international universities. A total of six degree programmes offered by UCC have now been fully accredited by the UCJ. They are the:
- Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Resource Management
- Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration
- Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing
- Bachelor of Science Degree in Informational Technology
- Associate of Science Degree in Business Administration
- Associate of Science Degree in Management Information Systems (MIS)
