Ozarka College Expands Teacher Education Degree Offerings
Published on October 4, 2017
Ozarka College is pleased to begin offering additional courses in the teacher education program. The University of Central Arkansas (UCA) submitted a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to Arkansas Department of Higher Education for a new 2+2 agreement between UCA and Ozarka College to offer a secondary history degree track in Teacher Education. The MOU was approved and Ozarka College will open registration for spring semester classes on November 6, 2017.
Prior to the latest MOU with UCA, Ozarka College offered two degree tracks under the Associate of Science Education degree plan. Students had the opportunity to select a focus area in Elementary Education (grades kindergarten through six and/or special education) or mid level education (grades 4-8, math/science, language arts, or social studies). Both of these degree tracks will continue to be offered and are eligible to transfer to Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Arkansas State University in Mountain Home, and UCA in Conway.
A third degree track option is now available, due to the additional 2+2 agreement with UCA. This enables students to select the secondary education degree track (grades 7-12, history and/or social studies) as their focus area. Upon completion of Ozarka's two-year Associate of Science degree in Teacher Education, graduates may transfer to complete their remaining two years at UCA, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education.
