    Program Description

    The General Education Certificate is designed to provide students working for the AA&S transfer degree with an academic credential recognizing their completion of a specific course of study that leads to their chosen degree.

    The Associate of Arts and Sciences Transfer Degree: Teacher Education Specialization (Pre-K-8) program is designed for students who are interested in teaching, specifically in grades pre-kindergarten through 8, to prepare them for 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.
