Why Education Pathway?

This two-year (63(64) credit) pathway offers course work leading to an Associate of Arts Degree for students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and pursue a bachelor's degree in Elementary or Secondary Education.

  • Explain the development of a child and concepts of learning and behavior;
  • Develop classroom rules and teach proper group behavior;
  • Assist students with computer technology;
  • Provide communication support for exceptional learners;
  • Serve as a teacher's assistant at the elementary or secondary level;
