A new agreement between Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) and Bennett College – both historically black institutions – is designed to help improve diversity in health care fields in North Carolina.
The graduate programs included in the agreement include health care administration, occupational therapy, physical therapy, rehabilitation counseling, and the accelerated Bachelor of Science in nursing. While Bennett College does not have programs in these fields, the private institution does offer majors in biology, chemistry, psychology, and social work – undergraduate degrees that offer a great fit for continued graduate work in health sciences.
The agreement will offer up to three slots per program to Bennett students who meet the admissions criteria for enrolling in WSSU’s health science programs. Bennett and WSSU will work collaboratively in recruiting and enrolling high performing students in the health science programs.
