The Associate of Arts degree in Secondary Education includes freshman and sophomore level courses required for most students majoring in secondary education. The program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become a teacher while earning transfer credit in the chosen content area (Science, Math, History, Social Studies, Agriculture, English, etc.).

Eastern Wyoming College maintains articulation agreements with several regional four-year institutions. Students should consult and work closely with their academic advisor to ensure successful transfer with these institutions. While transfer institutions are similar in most instances, each institution has unique degree requirements that only academic advisors may be aware of. It is in the student’s best interest to work with an advisor who can help facilitate the transfer process.

Notice of background check: All education students are subject to background checks for selected educational coursework involving student contact and future employment as professionals in education and related fields. Student financial aid may be used to cover the cost.

Students must complete all program requirements, including approved electives, with a grade of “C” or better.
