Degrees AS Education


    Philosophy     The Associate of Science in Education (ASE) degree will be awarded to students who successfully complete a planned program of collegiate level work that is transferable towards a baccalaureate degree in teacher education. This two-year transfer degree is designed to introduce students to the profession of teaching, to increase the number of teacher candidates, to ease transfer from two-year to four-year institutions, and to maximize the credit hours taken at the two-year institution.   
  • Elementary Education
  • Middle School Education
  In making a decision to enter the teaching profession, students should seriously consider the demands that this choice entails. Among these are scholarship and intellectual curiosity; an interest in children and young people, and an understanding of their interests, problems, and development; and an interest in and understanding of the role of the school in our society. It is important to embrace the National Council for the Accreditation of the Teacher Education's philosophy that each child, regardless of gender, race, creed, family background, exceptionality, or socioeconomic status, has a right to be taught by a qualified teacher who can help each child become all he or she can be.    Outcomes     Students completing this degree program successfully will be able to:  
  1. Demonstrate the skills and abilities named in the College's philosophy of general education so that they may become lifelong learners. 
  2. Complete a core curriculum of general and specialized education. 
  3. Develop introductory skills in the science and art of teaching.
  4. Observe various instructional and other school settings through clinical field experiences in public schools in the area.
  5. Develop an awareness for the critical discussion of the challenges of the profession and relationship between school and society. 
  6. Demonstrate basic instructional technology skills. 
  7. Initiate development of a professional portfolio.
  8. Transfer to a four-year institution of education and successfully complete a baccalaureate degree in teaching at the level and area of choice.
