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
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
Below are the courses we offer that are most relevant to this program. Check the program options above to

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.
