Education

Teachers change lives – they can open new worlds for students and inspire them to reach their goals. The education department provides courses for students that want to be teachers. Programs are offered for early childhood, elementary, and secondary teacher preparation. To enrich your experience as a prospective teacher, WWCC’s program emphasizes field experiences and practicums. These are opportunities for education majors to spend time in the public schools or preschools working with students and teachers. These experiences take place early in the education programs to help students make decisions about teaching careers and experience the real world of teaching.
