California University of Pennsylvania is launching a dual degree program in chiropractic studies, school officials announced Wednesday.

The three plus three degree program, offered in conjunction with the Palmer College of Chiropractic, the New York Chiropractic College and Logan University, allows students to earn a bachelor's degree at Cal U while transitioning to the doctor of chiropractic degree at any of the three chiropractic schools and complete both degrees in six years.

“The dual degree program saves students time and money by shortening the time it takes to earn a chiropractic degree,” said Terrie Greene, executive director of Cal U's Office of Articulation and Transfer Evaluation.

Students enroll in Cal U's biology program with a pre-professional concentration, in which they take 90 credits of approved courses. Those who meet qualifications can then transfer to one of the chiropractic schools, where 30 credits earned during year one of chiropractic study are applied to a bachelor's degree from Cal U.

With two additional years of study, students can earn a doctor of chiropractic degree.

For more information, email transfer@calu.edu or call 724-938-5939.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
