Joy in the classroom
Educating our future educators
Do you love children of all ages? Are you creative and caring? Do you love hands-on experiences? Do you want to change a child’s life through learning? If you answered yes to any of these questions, the Bachelor of Applied Science in Teacher Education (BASTE) program at Columbia Basin College (CBC) is for you!
BASTE program highlights:
- Education classes encompassing birth to third grade.
- Two to three year program length depending on how fast you would like to complete your studies.
- A full-time cohort starts each fall and a part-time cohort starts each summer.
At CBC we embrace diversity and for that reason great emphasis is given to educating all learners. By learning to work with every student, teacher preparation candidates are more likely to be successful when they have their own classrooms. Our program fosters collaboration with school districts and other institutions to ensure our future teachers are well connected.
