Education, Elementary (Transfer)
Elementary & SecondaryThere are many different educational programs available to prospective elementary and secondary teachers at Oregon Universities and Colleges. Some incorporate the teaching degree within a baccalaureate program, and some within a master's program. In secondary education, students are advised to decide what subject matter they plan to teach, and take classes as if that subject were their major. Students should work closely with UCC advisors and representatives of the intended transfer institutions(s).
All prospective teachers are urged to take ED 100, which is a teaching practicum. This will help students verify that teaching is a good career choice for them. In addition, students are urged to choose the baccalaureate school program early, and then align coursework at UCC to work best with those requirements. Secondary Education students are urged to work closely with advisors both at UCC and the "target" school in planning classes at UCC.
