2 + 2 Teacher Preparation Partnership Program

Become A Teacher!

Elizabeth City State University (ECSU) is very committed to the University of North Carolina-North Carolina Community College System (UNC-NCCCS) Joint Initiative and the 2 + 2 partnerships that have been established with our community college partners. This collaborative initiative has been a significant step towards producing "home grown" teachers to meet the demand for classroom teachers in North Carolina.

College of The Albemarle (Elizabeth City, NC & Manteo, NC) and Halifax Community College (Weldon, NC) are the two off-site programs that offer the Bachelor of Science/Elementary Education Degree at their locations through ECSU. Students earn an Associate of Arts Degree in pre-elementary education at the community college. Students in the 2 + 2 Teacher Preparation Partnership Program then complete their junior and senior level courses through ECSU for their Bachelor of Science/Elementary Education Degree.
Courses are taught face-to-face, on-line, hybrid, and /or information highway format which allows students to further their education while staying actively employed. Students can enroll as either part-time or full-time ECSU students.

Students will find small class sizes, academic support services, and credentialed faculty to support them.
