Teacher Education

Young female teacherWest Kentucky Community and Technical College provides the necessary coursework to prepare for teacher education programs at all of Kentucky’s major universities. Students who wish to become teachers will need to take the PRAXIS I exam prior to applying to a Teacher Education Program and have an undergraduate GPA of 2.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Each WKCTC education course requires that students observe classrooms in public education. 100 level courses require 10 hours of observation, and 200 level courses require a minimum of 15 hours of observation. These required observation hours count toward the 200 hours necessary in order to apply for student teaching in the senior year.

WKCTC has articulation agreements with Murray State University which identify the specific WKCTC courses necessary for the Associate of Arts (A.A.) and Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees and for transferring into their program:
