Many say that teaching is the most important job in the world. Teachers can shape America's future and have a lasting impact on their students. Teaching practices change often to meet academic achievement.
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.
