The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton has partnered with the University of Central Arkansas to provide a more cost-effective option for UACCM students continuing on to UCA’s Early Childhood Education program, according to a news release Monday.
Students who hold an Associate of Arts in Teaching degree and who are looking to complete their four-year degree in Early Childhood Education are eligible to take classes at UACCM for an additional semester. Participants will be UCA students taking junior-level classes taught by UCA professors on the UACCM campus.
This opportunity allows students to continue their education toward a four-year degree while eliminating much of their travel expenses. Students who complete the program will graduate from UCA with a Bachelor of Science in Education degree in Early Childhood Education, P-4. As part of this new offering, those students enrolled through UCA for the spring 2013 semester will begin classes Thursday, Jan. 10, at UACCM.
