The Associate of Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree, Pre-Teacher Preparation Elementary (PreK-6) Specialization is designed for students who are interested in teacher education, specifically in grades Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6 to test the academic field in which they will be working. They will also have the courses required by numerous four-year institutions in Virginia for entrance into colleges of education. Students pursuing this specialization would attain requisite coursework for university programs, and, in part, for teacher licensure in Virginia for elementary and middle school levels.
In addition to the admission requirements established for the college, entry into this program requires proficiency in English and mathematics. Students whose placement by VPT or other measures indicates a need for further preparation will be placed in the appropriate developmental courses in English and mathematics. Although developmental course credits do not apply toward the degree, these courses prepare students for collegiate-level work. Students required to take two or more developmental courses will need additional semesters to complete the degree.
