Red Deer College Collaborative BA Program
The Department of Sociology has been involved with the collaborative Bachelor of Arts (BA) program with Red Deer College since 1997. The program enables students to complete a BA program while remaining at Red Deer College , yet students receive their degrees from the University of Calgary.
Students enrol in a two-year transfer program through Red Deer College , and then complete the third and fourth years of their program by taking University of Calgary courses taught at Red Deer College. A number of sociology faculty have participated in this program, as have a number of students. The advantages for students are huge: not only do they receive a University of Calgary degree but they are able to obtain that degree in the comfort of Red Deer College . Likewise, the program offers faculty a chance to teach in a smaller institutional setting.
