The Associate of Science in Education is a transfer degree for the student who plans to obtain an Elementary (K-6) or Mid-level (4-8) teaching degree from Arkansas Tech University, Arkansas State University in Mountain Home, or the University of Central Arkansas.  Northark has agreements with these three universities to offer students seamless options for transfer to junior/senior level courses required to ultimately obtain a bachelor’s degree in teaching. Since these institutions have variations in required courses, students should work closely with a Northark advisor in order to complete specific courses needed for a smooth transition to the junior level at either any of these colleges.

Program Learning Outcomes

  • Students will be able to identify and reflect upon various attributes of an effective teacher, including, but not limited to, establishing a positive classroom environment, strategies for classroom management, maintaining student/teacher rapport, curriculum requirements, and lesson plans.

  • Students will be able to successfully use various forms of technology to assist them in the completion of activities and lesson plans for use with future students.

Total Credits: 60
