Connecticut Schools Create Insurance Degree Program

May 28, 2008

Students at two community colleges in Connecticut can now earn a college degree in insurance and financial services.

Gov. M. Jodi Rell says the state Department of Higher Education has approved an associate of science degree in the field.

The curriculum was developed by the Insurance and Financial Services Center for Educational Excellence, an initiative developed by businesses to boost employment in Connecticut and provide training for occupations such as financial managers and analysts, financial sales agents, accountants and auditors, underwriting and actuaries.

Faculty at Capital Community College in Hartford and Norwalk Community College worked with industry to develop the curriculum. The two schools will begin offering the course work this fall.
