Emphases: N/A About this Program
The Associate in Science Education is a transfer-oriented program providing a comprehensive core of education courses and experiences. It prepares individuals to transfer into a four-year teacher education program (or to work as educational paraprofessionals). The curriculum provides specific training, general education and experience working with children or youth in educational settings. Students interested in transferring to a four-year program need to check the specific transfer arrangements with the college of their choice and a Century College counselor. These discussions should take place early and often to ensure an appropriate program is planned for enrollment at Century and at the four-year school. This degree will fulfill the education requirements for paraprofessionals as described in the No Child Left Behind Act (Title I schools). Program costs listed below are approximate, and books and other fees are not included for general education coursework.
