The Education Studies AS degree is a jointly registered dual enrollment degree program with Brooklyn College and prepares students for transfer to their baccalaureate program.  Concentrations in Birth - 2nd Grade and 1st - 6th Grade allow students to focus on a specific area of interest. The degree prepares students for careers in a variety of roles in early childhood and elementary school settings.  Students learn about pedagogic theory and practice, the impact of diverse social, economic, political and cultural issues on families and schooling, and are provided with opportunities to further develop their skills through field work in elementary schools and childcare centers.  

The curriculum presented here applies to students who started the major in Fall 2021 or Spring 2022. If you enrolled as a matriculant prior to that, please see the College Catalog for the year you started the major as a matriculant for the curriculum requirements that apply to you.
