PJC offering upper level education courses this fall

Published or Revised July 15, 2015

Through a new partnership with Texas A&M University-Texarkana, Paris Junior College will have upper-division education courses on the PJC campus, beginning this fall.

This is the first time A&M-Texarkana has offered courses on the PJC campus.

“Future teachers now have more opportunities at PJC this fall,” said PJC Dean of Communications and Fine Arts Dr. Ken Haley. “We have two upper-level education courses offered on our campus by Texas A&M University-Texarkana. Not only will the partnership provide additional opportunities for our education students and more teachers for area schools, it will allow our students who want to pursue their education degrees at TAMU-Texarkana a chance to save commuting miles.

“As a native of Lamar County and a graduate of Paris Junior College, I’m thrilled to support the partnership between A&M-Texarkana and PJC,” said Dr. Glenda Ballard, dean of the College of Education and Liberal Arts at A&M-Texarkana.

Courses will include Foundations of Education on Mondays from 5:30-7:45 p.m. and Emergent Literacy Development on Mondays from 5:30-7:45 p.m.

“A&M-Texarkana has a strong teacher education program, and we have prepared many educators in the greater northeast Texas area,” Dr. Ballard said. “We want to partner with PJC to make that degree program as accessible, as affordable, and as relevant as we can make it.”
