CUESTE: Teacher Education Program: CUESTE (pronounced
“quest”) stands for Curriculum of Undergraduate Elementary
School Teacher Education and is a collaborative program
between BMCC and Eastern Oregon University (EOU).
Students seeking elementary teacher licensure need to complete
a major in multidisciplinary studies; a minor in an academic
