Pre-Elementary Education Degree
The A.A. in Elementary Education is designed to outline the freshman and sophomore years of study for students who plan to transfer to a university to seek a degree in teacher education with certification for Pre–K through grade six. The requirements are set for this major by the Oklahoma Regents for Higher Education.
