Elementary Education – Native Teaching cohort

This is a modified 2 + 2 articulation agreement where WSU supports Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College (FDLTCC) to begin a four-year teacher elementary education program. FDLTCC was granted permission by Minnesota Legislature to offer a teacher education several years ago.

Students complete the Associates degree at FDLTCC in Native Teaching Program and continue earning their Bachelor of Teaching in Elementary Education by joining the Elementary Education program.

Some classes are fully on-line, others are taught in Winona classrooms with a virtual connection to FDLTCC classroom (with a facilitator), others are taught at FDLTCC with or without a connection to a Winona classroom.
