Why Education?

Education includes programs in elementary and secondary education in the following focus areas: agriculture, art, communications and theater, health and physical education, history, math, music, science, and social science, with coursework also available in early childhood education. A practicum course allows students to observe teachers in action at area schools. While there are some opportunities in supporting roles in education for employment after two years, most teaching positions will require a bachelor’s degree. The A.A. degree is the best option for students planning to continue college after a two year degree.
