Associate Degree in Education
Diploma / certificate
The Education curriculum was developed to meet the needs of current and prospective students interested in transferring to a four-year institution for the purpose of receiving a PA Public School Teacher’s Certification. This degree is designed to transfer to middle grades, secondary education, special education, or other four year certification degree programs. Among colleges and universities there are variances within the first two years at some schools contingent upon the area of PA Public School Certification pursued. Additionally, each of these areas of certification involves different course selections. All of these conditions necessitate working closely with a transfer counselor in the Career and Counseling Center to ensure a seamless transfer process to a four-year institution. All students will be required to have Pennsylvania Child Abuse Clearance, Pennsylvania Criminal Clearance, FBI clearance and documentation of current immunizations and TB screening. The background checks should be acquired prior to starting coursework.
