The Associate of Science in Education is a transfer degree for the student who plans to obtain an Elementary (K-6) or Mid-level (4-8) teaching degree from Arkansas Tech University or Arkansas State University in Mountain Home. Northark has agreements with these two colleges to offer students seamless options for transfer to Jr/Sr level courses required to ultimately obtain a Bachelor's degree in teaching. Since ATU and ASUMH have variations in required courses for these degree options, students should work closely with a Northark advisor in order to complete specific courses needed for a smooth transition to the Jr level at either college.

Students interested in obtaining more information about these degree programs should contact Program Advisor JoAnn Walden to receive a degree plan checklist of required courses. Contact Walden at or 870-391-3346.
