Elementary Education

Program Goals Statement

This program prepares students to become transformative and empowering educators and who want to teach from Kindergarten through grade 6 (K-6) to transfer into an education program at a 4-year college or university that offers teacher licensure in Massachusetts. Moreover, the program also offers transfer pathways into Secondary Education programs at a 4-year college and university for students who choose to become Middle/High school teachers. Students are also qualified to be paraprofessionals once they have completed 48 credits.

Hints for Successful Completion

Within the semester following completion of ENG 102, students should seek the assistance of the Program Coordinator to make plans to take the state-administered Communication and Literacy Skills Test (CLST).

Program Information

• Students in the Elementary Education program are required to submit a Criminal Offender Record Investigation (CORI) check.  A positive CORI check would prevent a student from taking courses requiring field-related work, including EDU 130 and EDU 220.

• To enroll in EDU 220, students must have completed 27 credits with an overall minimum GPA of 2.5.

After Bristol

Our College participates in the statewide MassTransfer program and has developed many program-to-program transfer articulation agreements which guarantee admission and credit transfer. When choosing electives, complete an A2B Program search at www.mass.edu/masstransfer to determine available transfer institutions and to ensure all credits will be transferred and applied to your degree.
