Anna Maria presents Christmas Festival Concert Dec. 17 in Worcester

The Anna Maria College Music Department will present its annual Christmas Festival Concert at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 17. The concert will be held at Blessed Sacrament Church, 551 Pleasant St., in Worcester.

The concert will feature the school’s Concert Chorus, Chamber Choir and Wind Ensemble. The concert is free and open to the public.

The AMC music department performs quality repertoire on a professional and artistic level. The music program is designed for students who wish to develop good general musicianship within the context of a strong liberal arts education. Students in the program have the ability to develop sensitivity, intellectual background and technical dexterity in order to realize their potential for self-expression and communication through music.

Becker offers professional certificate in emergent leadership for women

The Yunus Social Business Centre @ Becker College is now offering the Women’s Emergent Leadership Institute (WELI), a certificate program focusing on developing leaders.

WELI is designed for women who aspire to be engaged in potential areas of leadership, or who are currently in leadership roles and desire the development of a leadership style that is inclusive, consensus-building, collaborative, and collegial for the purpose of achieving personal excellence and becoming creative agents of change.

To accommodate busy work schedules, WELI is held on weekends, Friday evenings and full days on Saturdays. Participants will develop a proposal implementing business principles for social impact as part of a final project. A professional certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of the program.

“This was a very good course to help me make some changes in the way I lead, in my professional and my personal life,” said Michelle Garber, a Spring 2017 WELI graduate. “The biggest things I took away were to be mindful, to know my value and go after what I deserve, the value of networking, and that the world doesn’t stop at the end of my street.”

A $450 fee covers program materials and lunch on Saturday. Space is limited. The deadline to register is Jan. 12.

Registration underway for Becker’s online ‘Intersession’

Becker College’s Winter Intersession is a short term between the fall and spring semesters that offers many of the traditional semester-long classes in under three weeks. All courses are entirely online, so students earn college credit and do the coursework from the convenience of home or other winter-break destinations.

“Taking an intersession class allows students to complete an extra course in the year, which some students use as an opportunity to complete a general education requirement,” said Ashley Ottman, assistant director of Becker’s Institutional Effectiveness of Nontraditional Programs. “This can help them get ahead.”

High school students can also take advantage of intersession to get in a college-level course. This year, GAME 4400 Evolution of Game Design is specifically being offered for high school students with an interest in that field.

Intersession courses are offered to all students at the discounted rate of $1,290 per 3-credit course. Registrations are currently being accepted.

QCC and Fitchburg State sign deaf studies articulation agreement

Quinsigamond Community College extended its close partnership with Fitchburg State University when the presidents of both institutions signed a Deaf Studies articulation agreement Dec. 9. Officials from both institutions were on hand for the signing ceremony at QCC’s main campus in Worcester.

“This agreement offers QCC students enhanced educational and career opportunities, further demonstrating QCC’s continued commitment to students’ success,” said QCC President Dr. Luis G. Pedraja. “Deaf studies is a fast-growing career field, with high growth rates and average starting salaries over $44,000.”

The signing of the agreement will enable QCC students who graduate from the QCC General Studies – Deaf Studies program to seamlessly continue their education at Fitchburg State. The agreement provides guaranteed acceptance into the deaf studies and American Sign Language baccalaureate programs at Fitchburg State as long as all criteria are met. Students must meet GPA requirements specified in the agreement, and follow the transfer admissions process for Fitchburg State.

Fitchburg State President Richard S. Lapidus said QCC’s associate degree aligns with his institution’s expanded deaf studies and ASL programs.

“This agreement provides a unique opportunity for students to advance their studies and gain valuable career credentials,” Lapidus said. “Students who complete these two degree programs will have a solid liberal arts foundation and skills that will serve them on a variety of career paths, including human services, nursing and exercise and sports science.”

QCC’s deaf studies program prepares students to have the necessary communication skills and cultural knowledge to work with deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals. Fitchburg State’s program builds on the QCC degree program, encouraging students to analyze existing stereotypes and policies relating to deaf and hard-of-hearing people in order to engage and effect change in the community at large. Possible career opportunities for this degree include interpreters, translators, speech pathologists and audiologists.
