Liberal Arts & Sciences: Teacher Education Transfer— A.A., A.S.

Childhood - Major #1802

Early Childhood - Major #1803

Adolescence - Major #1804

These programs has been deactivated and students will no longer be admitted to the major.  Currently enrolled students will complete the degree in accordance with the approved teach-out plan.

The Teacher Education Transfer program is designed to help students explore their interest in a career in teaching at the elementary or secondary levels. Students have the opportunity to become familiar with current issues and employment opportunities in this field and to do forty hours of guided fieldwork in area schools beginning in their first semester in the program.

Students choose one of three programs, depending on the grade level of the students they will eventually become certified to teach: Early Childhood (birth through grade 2), Childhood (Grades 1-6), or Adolescence (Grades 7-12).

Students in these degree programs also have a concentration. SUNY Morrisville offers six concentrations: English, History (Early Childhood/Childhood), Social Studies (Adolescence), (each leading to the Associate in Arts degree); Math, Biology, Chemistry (each leading to the Associate in Science degree).

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon Successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate pedagogical content knowledge and skills necessary to be a successful teacher education student

  • Demonstrate professional knowledge, skills and dispositions necessary to be a successful teacher education student

  • Demonstrate a critical understanding of the American educational system
