St Francis Xavier University and Nova Scotia Community College have signed an articulation agreement that will allow NSCC graduates from certain concentrations of the two-year Information Technology diploma program to enter directly into an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in computer science at StFX. “This agreement is especially important as universities across North America aren’t graduating enough students in computer science,” explains Wendy MacCaull, Chair of StFX’s Department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science. “There is a huge demand for computer science graduates. These skills make students very marketable and very much in demand.” StFX
