Elementary Education

Eastern offers a partnership with WVU Parkersburg, which offers bachelor's degrees, to allow students to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Education, where students complete two years of coursework and earn an associate degree at Eastern before transferring to WVU Parkersburg.

For the third and fourth years of coursework students are enrolled with WVU Parkersburg, but classes are held at Eastern's campus in Moorefield, and classroom observations and field placements are in schools located in the Potomac Highlands.

Associate in Science to Bachelor of Arts • 2+2 Program

Concentration and B.A. courses will be offered through WVU Parkersburg on Eastern’s campus via Zoom, Live, Blackboard, hybrid, or web.

All field placements, including student teaching, will be completed in Eastern’s service area and supervised by Sherry Michael, Eastern Education Programs coordinator.
