The Rural Teacher Education Pathway allows students from Lincoln County to complete the first two years of a Bachelor of Science in Education at Oregon Coast Community College and then transfer to Western Oregon University, with no loss of credit.  Students pursuing Elementary/Middle School preparation pathways will transfer to Western Oregon University to complete the third year of study at WOU before returning to the coast to complete their student teaching. Academic advisors will provide additional detail about the structure of the third and fourth years of this program.

The Details: Elementary/Middle School Teacher Transfer Program

Teaching is one of the most rewarding, yet challenging careers you can choose. Teachers make a difference in the lives of students – to help them learn to read, solve a math problem, or discover how plants grow. Elementary and middle school teachers introduce students to language, science, mathematics, social studies, the arts, and physical education. (Students interested in high school teacher transfer pathways should speak with their OCCC and Western Oregon University advisors.)
