Education – Elementary

A curriculum in Elementary education prepares students to teach in elementary schools. Related areas are kindergarten, special education, and middle school endorsement. Please work with your academic advisor and the catalog of the transfer institution to determine specific courses that should be taken. Students planning to transfer may wish to take advantage of the Education 2+2 Articulation Agreement in place with MSU-Billings. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer. They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC. Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.

Take advantage of our 2+2 articulation agreements in Education with MSU-Billings.
