Portage College has announced that it has partnered with the University of Calgary to offer a Bachelor of Education to students who wish to complete their studies while staying in the region. The four-year degree is offered almost completely online, with students completing a two-week on-campus summer residency at UCalgary’s Werklund School of Education. Students can enter the program directly from high school or with previous postsecondary experience. “There continues to be an ongoing need for teachers across rural Alberta, and this partnership with the University of Calgary allows us to continue to create local opportunities for students looking to complete a Bachelor of Education program,” said Portage Dean of Education, Arts and Culture, and University Studies Don Moore.
