The first sixty credits in the following program of study are designed to prepare students not only for the A.A. degree, but also for the General Knowledge exam and Elementary Subject Area exam of the Florida Teacher Certification Exam (FTCE).
If you plan to be an elementary school teacher and are just beginning your A.A. degree, this program of study will best prepare you for that career choice. If you have already completed your A.A. degree and some of your general education courses differ from those listed below, your A.A. degree will still meet that component of the admission process; however, you may need to complete additional coursework, independent study, or workshops to be well prepared for the FTCE Elementary Subject Area exam. A passing score on the FTCE Elementary Subject Area exam is one of the graduation requirements for this degree. For a detailed summary of graduation requirements for this degree program, see Bachelor of Science graduation requirement section.
Courses with the “C” designation include extra hours to accommodate field experiences.
Substitutions for any coursework in this program of study must be approved by the Teacher Education Department Chair. Please note that some courses below may require lower division prerequisites not specified as program requirements. Requirements for Teacher Education programs may change due to legislative mandate. Candidates should request the most current requirements from the Teacher Education Department Chair.
