Considering becoming a teacher? You can do that right here on the RSU campus!
The Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education* degree is a joint venture of Rogers State University and Cameron University (based in Lawton, OK). Both universities are regional institutions under the governance of the OU Board of Regents.
Elementary Education Degree Requirements
Under the CU-RSU collaborative elementary education degree program, students can earn an associate in arts degree in elementary education in two years from RSU. Students then transition into Cameron’s portion of the program, completing all requirements for a bachelor’s degree from Cameron in two years on the RSU campus in Claremore.
Cameron’s elementary education program is known for the high quality of its graduates.
In addition to the convenient location, the program also offers the following.
- Personal Connection: Established as a cohort model, or a type of learning community, the Cameron program offers small classes, personal interactions, and a focused, nurturing environment with high-impact practices. The rich, collaborative relationships that develop enhance the educational experience and carry over to professional placement after graduation.
- Scheduling Convenience: The Cameron program offers a mix of face-to-face, online, and hybrid classes with local field experiences in elementary school classrooms. In-person requirements for face-to-face and hybrid classes are generally scheduled on a two-day per week rotation.
- Affordability: Cameron University is one of the least expensive universities in the state of Oklahoma, which makes it one of the most affordable at which to earn your degree. As Cameron University’s President, John McArthur, stated in a recent email to faculty and staff, “We will continue to be the most affordable university in the state for Oklahoma residents at the undergraduate and graduate levels.”
If you want to become a teacher, Cameron would like to have the opportunity to serve you.

“I attended several different colleges in my educational journey, but nothing compares to my time at Cameron University. My school is always on the hunt for CU students because when CU students graduate they have everything they need to be successful classroom teachers.”
