Why Study Teacher Education?
Providing future generations with a quality education is the most important role that teachers play in our society today. This important career choice offers opportunities for professional service as well as tremendous personal satisfaction. The RCC Teacher Education Transfer program currently offers three degrees to prepare students to transfer and complete their teacher certification requirements. The AS Teacher Education program will prepare students to transfer to a baccalaureate program to continue their education in Early Childhood Education (Birth – grade 2), Childhood Education (Grades 1-6) or Adolescence Education (Grades 7-12). In addition to taking some initial courses in Teacher Education, students also begin courses in their Liberal Arts concentration choice of: Math, Biology, History, Art, English, or Foreign Language. Students who complete the program and want to seek immediate employment may obtain positions as teaching assistants.
