Education

Education Courses:
Overview
Education Teachers change lives by opening new worlds for students and inspiring them to reach their goals. The education department at Western Wyoming Community College provides programs and classes for students interested in a teaching career. We offer students three program options: early childhood, elementary, and secondary teacher preparation.

One of the strengths of our education program is that we provide students the opportunity to participate in preschool and/or public school classroom activities as a practicum student. Western's students will experience hands-on what it means to be a preschool, elementary, junior high, or high school teacher.

Students wanting to enter the teaching field must obtain at least a bachelor's degree in education. Therefore, Western's education program has specific pathways that will create a seamless transfer to any university in the country upon the successful completion of the associate degree requirements.
PROGRAMS and DEGREE REQUIREMENTS:
There are eight program options for Education. All of these Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degree options require 64 credits over 4 recommended semesters.



COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:
Below are the courses we offer that are most relevant to this program. Check the program options above to see which courses are required. Courses in other academic areas are also required. Please view the College Catalog for course descriptions not listed below.



TRANSFER INFORMATION:
To make the transfer to the university level simpler, we have transferability agreements with University of Wyoming, Regis University, Valley City State University, Western Governor's University, and Mayville State University.
