Under an articulation agreement that has been worked out with Alverno College in Milwaukee, Instructional Assistant program students at Moraine Park Technical College can transfer their associate degree to Alverno’s Elementary Education bachelor’s degree program if they wish to become teachers.
The articulation agreement applies to any Wisconsin technical college that offers the Instructional Assistant program. Moraine Park’s Instructional Assistant program offers an Associate of Applied Science degree, which prepares qualified individuals to work directly with students under the supervision of a licensed teacher. Students develop the skills to assist children with math, reading and writing assignments, as well as handle classroom management, clerical and other tasks related to instruction.
“Adding Alverno College to our growing list of transfer agreements is another option for our graduates to continue their education and earn a baccalaureate degree,” said Dan Ensalaco, Moraine Park vice president of academics and economic development. “This can be a benefit for the local school districts because their valued instructional aides can be potential classroom teachers for the schools.”
Moraine Park has program-to-program transfer agreements with private four-year colleges in which certain Moraine Park associate degree programs can be articulated toward a bachelor’s degree. Moraine Park also has program-to-program transfer agreements with 10 of the universities within the University of Wisconsin System, as well as general studies transfer agreements with UW-Green Bay and UW-Oshkosh. General studies agreements also exist with four-year private colleges such as Marian College and Milwaukee School of Engineering, as well as out-of-state institutions and online universities.
