Tougaloo College Partners With Mississippi State University’s College of Engineering

Historically Black Tougaloo College in Mississippi has signed a partnership agreement with Mississippi State University to enhance educational and research opportunities for students and faculty, particularly in STEM fields.

Under the agreement, Mississippi State University and Tougaloo College will continue to develop options for “3+2” programs, where students can earn a bachelor’s degree from Tougaloo and a bachelor’s or a master’s degree in engineering from the university’s Bagley College of Engineering. It also provides an accelerated pathway for students to earn graduate credit and complete other master’s degrees. The agreement also creates a new undergraduate student semester exchange program and enhances scholarship opportunities for students enrolled in programs covered by the agreement.

“The signing of this agreement builds upon the solid foundation and the wonderful relationship between Tougaloo College and Mississippi State University,” said Mark E. Keenum, president of Mississippi State University. “This new agreement expands degree opportunities on our campus for Tougaloo students and enhances collaborative research between our two institutions.”
