WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. – University of the Cumberlands signed a memorandum of understanding Monday with The University Center of the Mountains and Hazard Community and Technical College to provide an on-line Master’s Degree in Education for students who live in the Kentucky River region of Southeastern Kentucky. The M.Ed. program is designed for qualified students with a Bachelor of Arts degree but who are prevented from coming to Cumberlands’ main campus. Though provided through the UCM, the content and management of the program is the sole responsibility of UC.

Cumberlands’ Vice President of Academic Affairs Dr. Larry Cockrum said, “We are pleased to partner with service-based institutions that have a similar mission and want to see students do well.”
