Ohio Board of Regents Approves Arts & Sciences Program for Owens Findlay Campus

  FINDLAY - Owens Community College students now can take all of their Arts and Sciences classes in Findlay to earn the first two years of a bachelor's degree at Owens.

  The Ohio Board of Regents on Friday approved the Arts and Science programs for the Owens Findlay Campus.

  "The addition of the Arts and Science programs at our Findlay Campus is yet another demonstration of our commitment to best serve the higher education needs of the community," Owens President Daniel H. Brown said. "The Arts and Science programs are critical in providing area residents with access to quality higher education at an affordable price."

  President Brown added that this programming also has caused a renewed relationship with the University of Findlay. Through a collaborative agreement, Owens Findlay Campus students will be able to take specialized Arts and Science electives through the University of Findlay.

  Owens has offered the Arts and Science programs on the Toledo-area Campus since becoming a comprehensive community college in July 1994.

  Previously, Findlay Campus students enrolled in Arts and Sciences had to take some of their classes at the Owens Toledo-area Campus. Last fall, more than 300 Findlay Campus students were enrolled in Arts & Sciences.

  After graduating from Owens with an Associate of Arts Degree or Associate of Science Degree, students can transfer smoothly as juniors to any area four-year college or university.

  Owens has signed articulation agreements with many local schools, including the University of Findlay, Bluffton College, Tiffin University, Heidelberg College, Bowling Green State University, The Ohio State University and more.

  Through the Arts and Sciences program, students can choose a concentration in liberal arts areas such as psychology, history, education, biology, musical arts, women's studies and more.

  Students also may complete an Associate of Arts or Science Degree through the PBS "Going the Distance" Program, which offers classes through tele- and video-course formats.

  The Owens Findlay Campus, located at Cory and Davis streets, was constructed in 1983 and also offers more than 50 career-oriented programs and majors in agriculture, business, health, public service, industrial and engineering technologies.
