Associate of Science
Program Information: The associate of science in education degree program is designed for students who plan to transfer to UVA to complete a baccalaureate degree program in a particular subject and enter the teaching field.
Program Requirements: The world of modern education demands that its teachers and staff be knowledgeable both in their teaching field and in general education. Thus, this curriculum requires courses in the humanities, natural sciences, mathematics, social sciences, and health and physical education in addition to general course work usually required in the first two years of a baccalaureate teacher education curriculum. The student is urged to become familiar with the requirements of a major department in the college or university to which transfer is contemplated. The student also is urged to check the mathematics requirement of the four-year institution to which transfer is planned to determine the proper mathematics courses to take at PVCC. Upon satisfactory completion of the four- semester program, the graduate will be awarded the associate of science in education degree.
