Limited-Residency Undergraduate Teacher Preparation

Elementary Student Teacher Helping Students,

Prescott College’s Limited-Residency Undergraduate Programs are for students of any age and background wishing to complete a Bachelor of Arts degree and Post-Degree Certificate in their home communities without sacrificing personal or professional lives. Students benefit from the guidance of faculty members – experts in their particular fields – as they design learning experiences that integrate their passions and educational goals. Prescott College’s Limited-Residency programs rely on a hybrid instructional model.

This approach integrates individual faculty/mentor and student face-to-face instruction with limited residency and online distance education opportunities. We refer to this model as Community-Based Mentored Study. This means that each of our students’ home communities become extensions of the Prescott College learning community. With the guidance of content faculty, students create study contracts with local mentors who support the students’ learning in one to three courses each semester. Support for students is also available through the main campus in Prescott, Arizona.
