Lees McRae College Virtual Enhancement Opportunity



From: Kevin J. Phillips, Vice President for Enrollment Management at Lees-McRae College

Did you know that there is high demand for qualified teachers right now? Students who are interested in becoming teachers have a wonderful opportunity to accelerate their education at Lees-McRae College. With options ranging from elementary and special education to secondary level certification through our 4+1 MAT program, we offer you several pathways to becoming a certified teacher.

We cordially invite you to participate in a unique event that is focused on our academic programs in Elementary Education, Special Education, and our Direct Entry options to a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree. With the Direct Entry option, students will choose to major in either Biology, English, or History and then earn their master’s – all in five years or less!

Thursday, November 19 – 7:00 p.m. REGISTER

Saturday, December 12 – Noon REGISTER

You can learn more about all of these exciting majors at our Virtual Enhanced Visit, an online event that is not just you hearing from an admissions representative. Faculty, current students in the program, and an alum of the program will be on hand to talk with you further about pursuing a main campus degree in all of our education programs or completing your bachelor’s degree in elementary education online or at our extended campus option. Many school systems in North Carolina and all across the country have hired Lees-McRae graduates recently. Simply put, we teach you how to teach! We hope to see you soon!

--We also are hosting two on-campus Open Houses in the coming weeks – Saturday, October 24 and Saturday, November 14. These are nearly full, so sign up today if you would like to visit our beautiful 465-acre campus in Banner Elk, NC!
