Two coastal Georgia colleges have announced plans to form a criminal justice education partnership.

Savannah Tech and Armstrong Atlantic State University are working to form an alliance allowing students who receive associates degrees at Savannah Tech to apply all of their coursework to a bachelor of science in criminal justice at Armstrong.

Linda Bleicken, Armstrong president, says the degree is in demand and the alliance would create pathways and opportunities for students.

The Georgia Board of Regents and the Board of Technical Colleges must now vote on whether to approve the proposed partnership.
