HOULTON, Maine — Educators and potential educators can choose from a variety of programs and courses offered at University College at Houlton for the spring 2013 semester, which begins this January. Courses are taught by University of Maine System instructors at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
    Most of the courses are delivered online. Students without high-speed internet access can participate in the courses at University College’s well-equipped computer lab. Staff at the center offer support to all students who are new to online learning.
Programs range from a Master of Science in Adult and Higher Education from the University of Southern Maine to a certificate in Early Childhood Teacher from the University of Maine. Students who want to earn teacher certification can enroll in Elementary, Secondary and Special Education program pathways.
“Each semester we offer a greater number and variety of education courses online and at our center,” said Charles Ames, Director of University College at Houlton. “We are excited to offer courses and programs in our community that will allow people with busy schedules to become certified as Maine teachers.”
