Texas Chiropractic College, McMurry University launch joint-degree program
Texas Chiropractic College and McMurry University are teaming up to establish a joint-degree program between TCC's doctorate degree in chiropractic and the McMurry University Department of Biology's bachelor's degree. The articulation agreement was formally signed on July 26 and goes into effect for the fall 2012 academic term. It will allow students to complete their prerequisites in three years and have early admission to the Texas Chiropractic College program, Larry Sharp, associate professor of biology at McMurry, explained in a press release. As the students finish their first year at TCC, they will send their transcripts to McMurry, who will then award them a degree in biology, thus saving them a year's worth of undergraduate expense. "We were very excited to be approached by McMurry University's Dr. Larry Sharp about forming a partnership between our institutions," Clay McDonald, TCC provost, said in the release. "This is a great opportunity for students interested in health care to more quickly and economically earn a bachelor's from McMurry and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from TCC, making this a win-win for everyone."
