Degree Completion in Education

The Center for Nontraditional Teacher Preparation offers nontraditional degree programs and courses designed for the adult student who has 60 or more hours of college credit.

The Center currently offers a Degree Completion Program that leads to a Bachelors of Arts degree with majors in:

Birth-Kindergarten (B-K)

Elementary Education (K-6)

Middle Level Education (4-8) in any two of the following areas:

  • English/Language Arts
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies

These programs provide for an intensive and accelerated study allowing for completion of a degree in a shorter time period than normal.

By offering flexible scheduling, the program is designed for the adult student. Courses typically run in 6 week intervals and are offered during the day, evening, and on weekends in an attempt to accommodate non-traditional students.

Courses can be taken at our Professional Centers in Rogers and North Little Rock.
