Great need for teachers - choose a career that makes a difference!
Within the School of Education, individuals with an AA degree interested in pursuing a career in teaching may apply to one of the seven programs in the Bachelor of Science in Education (BSED). The Educator Preparation Institute (EPI), also in the School of Education, is a pathway for alternative teacher certification for individuals who already hold a bachelor's degree.
Teacher Alternative/Re-certification - The Florida Department of Education requires that educators earn six semester hours of college credit every five years as part of their certificate renewal. Our courses can also help with reinstatement requirements.
The College of Education will facilitate a unique learning environment in each program that will allow students to enhance their skills and reach their desired goals, whether it be skill attainment or program completion. Please call 386-506-3770 or contact Dr. Amy Ringue, Academic Chair, if you need additional information.
