MBU partners with Logan University for new 3+3 dual degree

PT students at Logan University

Missouri Baptist University has partnered with Logan University in Chesterfield, Missouri, on an articulation agreement that establishes a new 3+3 dual-degree, pre-chiropractic program between the two institutions.

The program makes it possible for qualified students to earn both a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from MBU and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan’s College of Chiropractic in just six years, one year less than the traditional academic study required by a Doctor of Chiropractic degree program.

“It is our goal to provide viable options and resources to students interested in pursuing a Doctor of Chiropractic degree,” said Clay McDonald, DC, MBA, JD, president of Logan University.  “Our partnership with Missouri Baptist University not only achieves that, but makes it both efficient and economical for students earn a bachelor’s degree at MBU as well as Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan.”

Dr. Greg Comfort, Health & Sports Sciences Division Chair at Missouri Baptist University, said: “Faculty from Missouri Baptist University and Logan University have collaborated on several student-centered academic initiatives in the past years. This new articulation agreement will provide one more way for the two institutions to work together to help students achieve their academic goals”.

Under the provisions of this 3+3 program, qualified students must successfully complete a minimum of 90 credit hours at MBU with a grade point average of at least 3.0 in order to be eligible to be admitted to Logan. Upon admission to Logan and completion of the required 35 hours of coursework in their first two terms, while maintaining at least a 2.0 grade point average, students will have completed both their bachelor of science degree in Exercise Science at MBU and satisfied the first two terms that will lead to their Doctor of Chiropractic degree. The program is currently available to those interested students.
