The Associate of Arts Degree in Education provides freshman and sophomore level courses required for most students majoring in education. Education programs vary greatly at four-year
institutions, so the student should consult the catalog of the college or university of his/her choice for information on specific program requirements.

The following courses are required for students majoring in elementary education and planning to transfer to the University of Wyoming: Educational Foundations 2451, Life Span: Adulthood (in addition to Psychology 2300, Developmental Psychology). Elementary Education majors must complete 3 specific science courses and seminars;

please consult your advisor for more information. Education majors planning to transfer to Chadron State College are well-advised to complete an Associate of Arts Degree at Eastern Wyoming College. Our articulation agreement with Chadron specifies that students with an A.A. Degree will have met all of their General Studies requirements except the 6 hours at the upper division level.

Middle school education requirements vary from state to state. In some states, students may add a middle school endorsement to an elementary or a secondary education program. Specific courses for this endorsement are not currently available at this community college.

Criminal background checks are required for certain courses in this area. The background check will cover sexual offender information, general criminal history, and adult and child neglect information. Student financial aid may be used to cover the cost.
