This two-year program is designed to help students gain acceptance into teacher preparation programs at four-year institutions.
The A.S.T is a jointly developed degree through the TBR community colleges. Currently, students attending a community college follow articulation agreements worked out with nearby four-year teacher preparation colleges. With the AST, students will be able to finish at any community college and enroll in any TBR teacher education program. Students intending to transfer to the UT system or private institutions should consult a faculty advisor on the appropriateness of the AST for transfer.
Upon completion of the Associate of Science in Elementary Education or the Associate of Science in Teaching, students may continue their program of study with ETSU at WSCC. ETSU will provide faculty for the completion of the Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies (K-6).
For more information on these programs see Dr. Marilyn Bowers , Dean of Behavioral and Social Sciences.
