The Career and Technical bachelor’s degree is designed for students who are employed as Career and Technical Education instructors and who possess job-relevant competence. Several courses are available via web-based instruction even though courses are typically delivered in a traditional classroom setting providing interaction among teacher education faculty, pre-service teachers, and guest speakers. Opportunities also exist for interpersonal and social contact, observation of non-verbal communication, and role modeling. Emphasis in this program of study is on assisting pre-service teachers with the transition from business/industry to education.
