Glenville, WV – Local residents can still earn Bachelor of Arts degrees in teacher education from Glenville State College by attending classes in Nicholas County. A partnership between GSC and New River Community and Technical College continues and allows area students to complete the degree requirements at NRCTC’s Summersville campus.
GSC Dean of Education Dr. Kevin Cain said, “The Teacher Education Division at Glenville State College continues to work proudly with the New River Community and Technical College faculty and staff at their Summersville location to bring a four-year program in education to citizens in that part of West Virginia.”
An informational session about the program is scheduled to be held on Wednesday, April 9th beginning at 11:00 a.m. in the NRCTC Summersville campus commons area. Meeting organizers will discuss the education degree program and how to enroll. They will also discuss the fall GSC courses that will begin on August 18th at New River CTC’s Summersville campus.
“Glenville State College is committed to the partnership established with New River CTC to provide college classes to people who live in and around the Summersville area. This program allows students an opportunity to take classes close to home and save time and money while working toward a teaching degree. West Virginia benefits from the qualified teachers who graduate from these programs and then go on to educate the youth in our state,” said GSC Assistant Coordinator of Off-Campus Programming Kathy Gilbert.
The meeting is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Cain at Kevin.Cain@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6201 or Gilbert at Kathy.Gilbert@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6124.
