Framingham State College, founded by Horace Mann in 1830, is the oldest teacher training institution in the United States.

Accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Framingham State conducts various graduate education degree programs in countries throughout the world.

The proposed collaborative degree program is offered by Framingham State in conjunction with International Education Programs, Inc.

NMC earlier disclosed that a collaborative effort with the San Diego State University to offer higher education degree programs at the local campus has stirred quite an interest among local folks.

Meetings held between NMC, SDSU, and the community over a three-day period last month yielded an estimated 130 parties interested in pursuing either a baccalaureate or a master’s degree program under the direction of both institutions.

With NMC to play as host, SDSU will be facilitating the instruction of students for the undergraduate and graduate programs on Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, Bachelors in Vocational Education, Masters in Business Administration, Educational Leadership, and Curriculum and Instruction.
