Cameron University to host free CU Become a Teacher workshop in Claremore

Cameron University, which offers bachelor degree programs in elementary education and social studies education at Rogers State University in Claremore, will host a “CU Become a Teacher” workshop in room 310 of RSU’s Prep Hall  on Monday, October 7. The free, specialized workshop focuses on the multiple pathways for becoming a teacher, including options for working professionals seeking a bachelor’s degree in education. The session will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. There is no charge to attend. A free dinner is provided for all who pre-register. To register online, go to http://www.cameron.edu/cu-become-a-teacher and click on “Registration Form.” For more information, contact Jayne McLoughlin at 918-343-7971 or jmclough@cameron.edu

The Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and the Bachelor of Arts in Social Studies Education degrees are joint ventures between Cameron University and Rogers State University. RSU students who earn an Associate in Arts degree in Elementary Education or an Associate in Arts degree in Social Studies Education will transition seamlessly into Cameron’s portion of the programs and complete the remaining requirements for a bachelor’s degree from Cameron in two years on the RSU campus in Claremore. This allows students to obtain a four-year degree in elementary education or social studies education in Claremore with no need to transfer to institutions located in other parts of the state. Field components and student teaching internships in area school classrooms are included in the degree programs.

CU Become A Teacher will offer information to those who have a college degree, those who have earned college credit but have yet to earn a degree, and those who have yet to earn college credit.

Presented by the CU Department of Education, CU Become a Teacher is made possible through an Oklahoma Teacher Connection Grant from the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.
