B.S. in Elementary Education

Degree Sheet  Roadmap

The Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education* degree is a joint venture of Rogers State University and Cameron University. Both universities are regional institutions under the governance of the OU Board of Regents. Under the CU-RSU collaborative elementary education degree program, students can earn an associate in arts degree in elementary education in two years from RSU. Students then transition seamlessly into Cameron’s portion of the program, completing all requirements for a bachelor degree from Cameron in two years on the RSU campus in Claremore.

Governed by the same board of regents, Cameron and RSU utilize innovative scheduling approaches to offer the seamless “two plus two” degree program, allowing students to obtain a four-year degree in elementary education in Claremore with no interruption or need to transfer to other institutions.

Cameron’s elementary education program, known for its strong enrollment and solid graduation numbers, has traditionally been offered at the university’s Lawton campus in the 16-week format and is now offered on the RSU campus. In addition, field components and student teaching internships in area elementary school classrooms are also offered.

Dr. Kevin Woller, Professor

“Our small class sizes allow students to be immersed in the rich variety that comes with courses focused on the individual, groups, and social situations. Faculty have a broad range of expertise and interests that help to personalize the classroom experience, as well as affording various real-world opportunities. Our award winning student organizations are among the oldest at RSU, further broadening student opportunities for professional growth and service to the academy and the community. Our graduates report that they are well-prepared for the workforce or graduate school, which is supported by the fact that so many have a job or a graduate placement immediately after graduation.”
