Are you interested in becoming a K-12 teacher, specializing in science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM)?
Our Associate in Science in Teacher Preparation degree program, consisting of a minimum of 60-61 semester hours, is designed for students who wish to become K-12 teachers specializing in STEM courses. The ASTP degree includes a social diversity course along with the following education courses: Teaching and Learning for All, Foundations of Education, Literacy Development and Instruction, and Teacher Licensure Preparation. The ASTP degree provides students the opportunity to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in education at the community college and transfer to the four-year institution to complete the last two years of their bachelor’s degree, saving both time and money.
Note: Community college graduates must obtain a grade of “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.7 on a 4.0 scale in order to transfer to the four-year institution with junior status. Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions.
