OC2UTPB Teaching in 3


Odessa College and UT Permian Basin have partnered to create an accelerated Teacher Education program, OC2UTPB Teaching in 3, for those aspiring to make a difference in young lives. Together, we can meet the urgent need for teachers in our region.

The 3-year program will consist of a year-and-a-half of courses taken at OC, followed by another year-and-a-half at UTPB. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive an Associate of Arts in Teaching degree from OC, followed by a Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies, EC-6, from UTPB.

This accelerated format is perfect for students ready for the challenge of taking maximum credit hours each semester to finish the program on an accelerated schedule.

Day, evening, Saturday and online options are available to fit students’ needs. Applications are accepted throughout the year, and new students can start at OC any term.
