A Noteworthy Partnership
The W's School of Education has a Partnership Pathway with Copiah-Lincoln Community College that allows students studying Early Childhood Education or Elementary Education at Co-Lin to continue their bachelor's degree studies online through The W.
Depending which pathway you choose, you will earn either a Bachelor Science in Elementary Education or a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Development. It is granted by Mississippi University for Women and is offered through the University's School of Education.
Students closer to Columbus may choose to take classes on the The W campus. However, through a partnership with Co-Lin Community College, students may take a majority of their courses online and complete supervised student teaching hours within elementary schools in Wesson and surrounding areas. While we hope to see all of our students on campus, particularly for major events that include graduation commencement, Co-Lin transfer students may complete the Elementary Education degree without having to drive to The W campus.
