School-Age Education associate degree new for fall
May 17, 2012
A-B Tech Community College’s Early Childhood Education department has redesigned its School-Age Education associate degree for fall 2012 to allow graduates to transfer seamlessly to a four-year college for a bachelor’s degree in education.
A-B Tech graduates will have completed the general education classes needed to enroll as a junior in an education program at a university, saving them thousands in tuition and fees, according to Early Childhood Education Chair Cathy Cody.
“Spending all four years at a university and graduating with thousands of dollars in student loans isn’t an acceptable option for many students,” Cody said. “There are also students who have family, jobs or other obligations that don’t allow them to leave the area.”
The School-Age Education associate degree at A-B Tech is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and offers a personal approach to education. “Our average class size is 15 to 25, while universities often have general education classes with hundreds of students in them,” Cody said.
