Education Transfer Concentration Information

This concentration provides the first two years of study for students who want to teach in public school, pre-kindergarten through grade twelve. After receiving the Associate of Arts Degree, students should plan to transfer to a college or university offering a bachelor’s degree in education. Completion of the bachelor’s degree leads to Teacher Licensure in the State of Ohio.  Students should not confuse this concentration with Owens’ Early Childhood Education program for students primarily intending to seek employment upon graduation with an Associate of Applied Science Degree, and who plan to work in a child care center, Head Start Center or public paraprofessional preschool.
