Program offers B.A. in education

Towson University, in partnership with Harford Community College, is planning to offer students in Harford and Cecil counties the opportunity to obtain a bachelor's degree in elementary/special education at the Higher Education and Conference Center at HEAT in Aberdeen.

A meeting on the program will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Higher Education Center, 1201 Technology Drive, Aberdeen.

Towson admissions personnel will be at the meeting to discuss transcripts and other enrollment information. A Harford County Public Schools representative also will present information on potential employment opportunities for program graduates.
