Available at KPC's Kenai River Campus in Soldotna and Kachemak Bay Campus in Homer through UAA
The BA in Elementary Education is a UAA/Anchorage campus degree program being offered at KPC. A student interested in elementary teacher preparation may obtain either a BA in Elementary Education (BAEE) with elementary teacher certification or an Elementary Teacher Certification only. At this time, both programs are available at KPC’s Kenai River Campus. Advising is required. The BAEE is a professional degree. Unique features of the program include a strong liberal studies emphasis, integration of educational technology and a year-long internship that follows the local school district’s calendar rather than the Kenai Peninsula College calendar. Students are encouraged to take ED A101, Introduction to Education (3 credits), to learn more about the profession before declaring the major. Careful course sequencing is necessary in order to meet the requirements. For more information on this program, visit http://www.uaa.alaska.edu/coe/index.cfm or see the KPC catalog .
UA degrees at KPC
KPC offers courses that lead to completion or near completion of several degrees offered by other campuses of the University of Alaska. As a community campus of UAA, KPC is able to support these program offerings based on student interest and adequate enrollment. It is very important to consult with an advisor to plan a program.
Bachelor programs and Associate programs offered through other UA campuses require students to complete admission and graduation applications through the campus that offers the degree, and will be subject to the admission and graduation application deadlines of that campus.
