JCC’s teacher education transfer degree programs provide students with knowledge, skills, theory, and hands-on educational experiences that will prepare them for transfer to a four-year institution with New York state teacher certification authority. Graduates will be able to transfer with full credit and junior status into participating SUNY four-year teacher education programs. Students will begin fulfilling their liberal arts concentration requirements along with courses in education theory and practice. Concentration areas include: art, biology, chemistry, earth science, English, foreign language, general science, history/social studies, mathematics, music, and physics.
This program is designed to prepare students for transfer to classroom teacher preparation programs in the areas of childhood education (grades 1-6) with middle school extension (grades 7-9 subject area) at four-year institutions with New York state teacher certification authority. Students who plan carefully can normally be expected to transfer to a four-year institution as juniors. The transfer institutions may have differing requirements. Students should plan their programs with a transfer counselor and an academic advisor as soon as possible and preferably before beginning their first semester at JCC.
