      Dean College Approved to Offer B.A. Degrees in English, History, Psychology & Sociology

      04/30/2014

      Dean College has been approved by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education to offer stand-alone B.A. degrees. Beginning in fall 2014, students at Dean College will be able to complete a Bachelor of Arts in English, a Bachelor of Arts in History, a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology or a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. These degree programs will take the place of concentrations in English, History, Psychology and Sociology under the umbrella of the B.A. in Liberal Arts and Studies. The Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts and Studies will remain, and students pursuing that degree will be able to design their own major with the approval of the Dean of the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

      These new B.A. programs, along with the LAS bachelor’s degree, prepare students for the world of work or graduate school.  “Today’s employers are seeking college graduates who have the knowledge and skills that liberal arts degrees provide; inquiry and analysis, critical and creative thinking, written and oral communication, quantitative and information literacy, teamwork and problem solving,” said Dr. Linda Ragosta, Vice President of Academic Affairs.

      Dean College now proudly offers 9 Bachelor Degree programs, including Arts and Entertainment Management, Business, Dance, English, History, Liberal Arts and Studies, Psychology, Sociology or Theatre. Additionally, Dean College offers 17 Associate Degree programs, as well as a robust schedule of part-time continuing and professional education credit and certificate programs throughout the calendar year.

      04/25/2014

      Dean College will host the Region XXI Softball Tournament this Sunday, April 27th, with the first game slated to start at 1:00 p.m.  The second game of the best two out of three will start at approximately 3:00 p.m.  If the two teams split on Sunday, they will play the final game of the series on Tuesday, April 29th at 3:00 p.m.  All games will be played at Dean’s Longley Field, located at 69 Maple Street, Franklin.

      The Dean College Softball team earned the top seed in the Region XXI playoffs with a sweep of the Community College of Rhode Island this week, 15-8 and 7-4.  With an 18-5 record, the Bulldogs look to win their first regional softball title since 2005, when they were the Northeast District champions with a 17-8 record. 

      Dean has been led by sophomore outfielder Andrea Vulter (Grafton, MA), batting at a .471 clip with 16 runs batted in and 11 stolen bases.  Freshman shortstop Arianna Medeiros (Tewksbury, MA) gets the offense going from her leadoff position with a .459 average and 12 stolen bases.  These two set the table for Jackie Kielty (Middleboro, MA) who leads the team in runs batted in with 29 and in triples with 3.  Overall the team is batting .368.  On the mound, Kielty and freshman Shelbie Eldredge (Harwich, MA) provide a solid 1-2 punch that allows under three runs per game.

      The winner of the regional tournament will advance to the Northeast District tournament, held on May 3-4 at the site of the Region 15 (Long Island-Westchester County) champion.
