Are you a community college student interested in transferring and majoring in education?
If you are transferring from a community college to a four-year institution in order to complete a teacher education degree, you are smart to consider enrolling in UNCP.
Becoming a teacher means that you will become a part of UNCP’s School of Education. And becoming a teacher means that you will not only make a difference, you will be the difference to every student you teach. With the teacher shortage in North Carolina, there is a huge demand for teachers and many terrific opportunities await you in classrooms across the state.
Here’s how to get started.
Come by or call the Office of Teacher Recruitment and speak to Ms. Strickland or Ms. Whittington (Robeson Community College). They will give you information and materials that will help you make your decision.
Here’s other information for you.
