This 67 credit program is designed to provide education and experiences which will allow students to transfer to Eastern Connecticut State University meeting the requirements to be accepted into a teacher training program. The field of education is a growing profession. The National Center for Education Statistics predicts increases in the annual numbers of new school teacher hires, both in public and private schools. This transfer program closely parallels the core requirements of the first two years of most four-year college teacher preparation programs in Connecticut. Students are advised to review the requirements of the transfer institution prior to course selection.
