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 beginning spring semester 2006.

An information session for the program will be held at 6 p.m., Monday, Sept. 19, at the Western Carolina University Partnership for Aging and Education office at the corner of Sixth and Fleming streets near Pardee Hospital. The session is open to anyone interested in learning more about the program and does not require a reservation.

Prospective students should hold associate's degrees or have completed the majority of the general education core or liberal studies course work. Individuals who have completed college-level course work from other institutions may also transfer credit toward the teaching degree depending on transcript evaluation.

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.

Prospective students may bring copies of their transcripts and a $40 application fee to the session. Official copies of transcripts are preferred.

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