A zeal for teaching and molding young people into becoming educated and productive citizens is a major benefit in seeking a rewarding career in education. Through the Joint Admissions program, a partnership between Lone Star College-Kingwood and the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD), adults can now earn their bachelor’s degree in teaching entirely at LSC-Kingwood.
Anyone interested in learning more about the Joint Admissions program is invited to attend an information session held at LSC-Kingwood on Wednesday, July 27 from 5-7 p.m. in CLA 114. Advising, admissions and financial aid personnel from both campuses will be on hand to answer any questions and give enrollment advice. This session is free and open to anyone with an interest in becoming a teacher.
“This information session will give prospective students a peek at all of the options available to them through the Joint Admissions program,” Noel Bezette, lead faculty of education/psychology at LSC-Kingwood said. “Our goal is to continue informing the community about the program and how easy and convenient it is to earn a bachelor’s degree in teaching right here, literally, in their own community.”
Undergraduate students can work towards an Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) while they enter the Joint Admissions program offered through UHD to earn their bachelor’s degree in teaching without ever having to leave the LSC-Kingwood campus.
Specialized programs offered to current and future educators are EC-6, EC-6 bilingual and 4-8 certifications. All tracks lead to an initial Texas teacher certification. Groups who can benefit from the programs are high school seniors, paraprofessionals, substitute teachers, teacher aides, preschool teachers and anyone interested in teaching.
