With an associate degree in education, you will acquire knowledge of the teaching profession as well as a strong background in general education subjects required of teachers. You will be prepared if you choose to transfer your degree to a bachelor's degree program in education.

By completing a Gen Ed Transfer core and your Education courses, you will be ready to enter baccalaureate degree programs as a junior ready to pursue your bachelor's degree in education.

Transfer Degree:

Associate of Science (60 credit hours = 4 semesters)

The Associate of Science degree prepares you for transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a baccalaureate degree. The Associate of Science degree in Education transfers to some Indiana public and private colleges and universities. Graduates will also earn the Transfer General Education Certificate.
