The Teacher Education Transfer Program prepares students interested in transferring to a four-year college program. Students in this program begin training to become teachers and have opportunities to explore the diverse world of education and ways to work effectively within it. The program is constructed on a foundation of general education courses inclusive of the humanities, fine arts, mathematics, social and natural sciences, and health and life fitness; it provides opportunities for students to acquire beginning professional skills and general knowledge and understanding. Students work closely with their advisers and the BCCC Transfer Counselor to examine the most appropriate four-year programs.
Transfer concentrations can include: Elementary Education, Special Education, Urban Recreation, Foreign Languages, Social Studies, Science/Mathematics, Health and Life Fitness, or Early Childhood Education. The program requires minimum grades of “C” in all courses.
Candidates for graduation in this program must pay for and take the ETS National Teacher Examination: PRAXIS I test before graduation. PRAXIS is offered several times during the year. Students should see their academic advisors or the program head for more information.
