ECU Partnership Teach

ECU Partnership Teach (formerly known as Partnership East) is an East Carolina University College of Education degree completion partnership with North Carolina community colleges. Students graduate with a four-year degree in elementary education or special education from ECU by completing the first two years of the program at a partnering community college followed by taking ECU courses online and through a limited amount of face-to-face instruction in the evenings or by completing the ECU courses totally online.  This degree completion partnership is designed specifically for students that transition from a North Carolina community college.
