Students entering the Elementary Education transfer curriculum plan at NDSCS are exposed to a wide range of courses and disciplines. Upon completion of the requirements, students are awarded the Associate in Arts degree. Students then transfer to other colleges or universities to take their education courses and to student teach.
Kindergarten and elementary school teachers need a wide variety of skills and aptitudes, including a talent for working with children; organizational, administrative and recordkeeping abilities; research and communication skills; the power to influence, motivate and train others; patience; and creativity. Preparing students for the future workforce is the major stimulus generating the changes in education. To be prepared, students must be able to interact with others, adapt to new technology, and to think logically through problems. Teachers provide the tools and environment for their students to develop these skills.
This plan meets the Liberal Arts Program Purposes listed in the NDSCS Catalog.
The applicants must be high school graduates or equivalent. Applicants may be required to complete a basic skills evaluation during the admission process.
Upon successful completion of the required courses, students will be awarded an Associate in Arts degree in Liberal Arts.
