Education, Middle Level

The middle level education concentration will prepare students to transfer to a four-year institution to earn a bachelor's degree in middle level education and teacher licensure (Grades 6-9) in the state of Illinois. Students in middle level education complete a core of required methods courses, and then complete discipline-specific courses to be licensed in one or more content areas. Content areas include English Language Arts, Social Sciences, Mathematics, and Science.

The associate in science (A.S.) degree is designed to complete the lower-division (freshman and sophomore) portion of a bachelor of science degree in STEM-related majors. As a result, the A.S. degree does not include the entire General Education Core Curriculum (GECC). Therefore, students will need to complete MORE general education courses after transfer by completing the GECC curriculum while enrolled at the participating Illinois transfer institution OR fulfilling the general education requirements of their selected non-participating transfer institution.
