ELEMENTARY EDUCATION PROGRAM                                                            

CULLOWHEE Western Carolina University, in partnership with Blue Ridge Community College, will offer students an opportunity to earn a bachelor of science in education degree or teacher licensure in elementary education in Henderson County this fall.

An information session for the program will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 5, in Room 245 in the Sink Building on the Blue Ridge Community College campus.

The session is open to individuals who hold associate's degrees or have completed the majority of the general education core or liberal studies course work. Individuals who have earned bachelor's degrees and want to obtain K-6 licensure also are welcome.

Designed for adults who intend to enroll as part-time students, all classes will be offered at BRCC on its campus in Flat Rock using on-site classroom instruction and Web-enhanced instruction.

Western faculty members will be on hand to explain how the program is delivered, discuss criteria for entry and answer questions. For those who are unsure if they qualify to enter the program, advisement center representatives will be available to review transcripts. 

For more information, contact Marcia Caserio, Western's regional director of education outreach, at (828) 693-8375, or via email at marciac@blueridge.edu.
