SECU Partnership East Education Degrees

East Carolina University College of Education with the support of State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation has established consortium partnerships with community colleges and public schools within the university’s service region. The SECU Partnership East South Central Consortium is making it possible for students throughout eastern North Carolina to obtain a four-year degree from East Carolina University without traveling to the main campus. Students graduate with a four-year degree from ECU by completing the first two years of the program at Johnston Community College, one of the partnering community colleges, followed by taking ECU courses 100% online.

Degree Programs available include:

  • Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (K-6) with K-12 reading licensure
  • Middle Grades Education (6-9) Concentrations:  Social Studies and Language Arts
  • Bachelor of Science in Special Education (K-12) with K-12 reading licensure

Kathy Bradley is a lifelong Pirate educator and is excited about helping Johnston Community College students find their path to their own classrooms.  Mrs. Bradley earned her Bachelor of Science in Science Education and Master of School Administration from East Carolina University.  As a middle school principal she realized that teachers who graduate from ECU are well prepared for today's classrooms.  Now she works with the ECU College of Education to help those students who prefer or need to learn online become teachers.
