New articulation agreement in Elementary Education
Elementary Education program is available both on campus and online
The University of Wisconsin-Superior and Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College announce a new articulation agreement in Early Childhood Education.
WITC or any student in the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) with an Early Childhood Education Associate of Applied Science degree can make a seamless transition to UW-Superior by transferring the credits they earned in that program to UW-Superior for a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood minor. UW-Superior's Elementary Education program is available both on campus and online, making it the only program of its kind in the state.
In the interest of fostering cooperation between institutions, and to better serve the transfer of students from WITC to UW-Superior, the faculty and administration of both institutions have established this articulation agreement.
"We are eager to facilitate the transfer between Wisconsin technical schools and UW-Superior," said Taylor Walkky, an advisor in the Elementary Education program at UW-Superior. "These students have so much experience already in Early Childhood classrooms that they will be a great asset to our program. We look forward to working together to help Wisconsin students around the state become teachers."
This new arrangement is the third between UW-Superior and WITC. The other recent agreements already in place are for Business and Social Work.
"Prospective students pursuing degrees within the field of teacher education often face challenges related to access and affordability," said Laura Wassenaar, Divisional Dean of Family and Consumer Services at WITC. "This agreement creates an additional educational pathway allowing these students to be more savvy planners, potentially saving time and money. Students can complete two years with WITC and transfer to UW-Superior, receiving valuable and high quality educational experiences from each location that compliment and build upon one another."
