Although Northern Arizona University’s main campus is located in Flagstaff, through NAU’s extended campuses elementary and special education teacher certification bachelor’s degrees can be completed right here in the Valley of the Sun! These programs are dubbed “2+2” because NAU offers only the junior and senior level courses here, so students need to complete their freshman and sophomore years at the community college first. For more information, visit http://extended.nau.edu
Enrolling in the Connect2NAU program is easy and it comes with the following great benefits. Contact email@example.com or 480-461-7984 to meet with an NAU representative at MCC to get on board.
Arizona needs more highly qualified math and science teachers. NAUTeach is modeled after the successful University of Texas at Austin program where science and math majors can explore teaching as a career in a low-risk manner before making a commitment to the teaching profession. Beginning Fall 2010 one-credit introductory classes (EDU111 and EDU112) can be taken at MCC to provide field experiences in local K-12 classrooms in preparation for the NAUTeach program. Students complete freshman and sophomore years at MCC or another Maricopa College, spend three semesters at NAU-Flagstaff, then finish their final semester as an apprentice teacher back in the East Valley. The BS Ed in Secondary Education degree options are in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, General Science and Math. Contact Julie Garner at Julie.Garner@mesacc.edu or 480-461-7890.
The MCC Education Studies Department in conjunction with the NAUTeach program is facilitating paid internships to provide college freshmen and sophomores a chance to observe and engage in science and mathematics teaching with K-12 youth. The purpose is to encourage the pursuit of careers in secondary science or mathematics education. Funding is provided through a Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship grant from the National Science Foundation. Click on the Noyce Internship link in the left-hand column for details.
