CULLOWHEE Western Carolina University and Haywood Community College will offer courses leading toward the bachelor's degree in early childhood education this fall.

An information session will be held Thursday, May 13, in the Haywood Community College cafeteria at 5:30 p.m. Pre-registration is not required.

Designed for adults who work full time, the program will include classroom instruction at HCC in Clyde and online courses.

Students in the program will obtain bachelor's degrees or licensure to serve children ages birth through 5, with or without disabilities, and their families.

Enrollment is open to students who hold an associate's degree in arts or science, or have earned 60 hours toward a two-year degree in early childhood education with a minimum of a 2.5 grade point average.

Persons who hold a bachelor's degree in another field may apply for admission in order to obtain teacher licensure.
