The Education Department at Massasoit Community College houses a Liberal Arts Transfer Elementary Education degree.
Students who wish to become teachers of children in grades 1 through 6 can begin their undergraduate work in the Elementary Education Program at Massasoit Community College. The Liberal Arts Transfer - Elementary Education degree is designed to allow students the opportunity to obtain an Associate in Science degree which meets the requirements of the Elementary Education Transfer Compact as well as the MassTransfer Compact of the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education. Students may then transfer to participating Massachusetts State Colleges or Universities as Elementary Education majors to continue preparation for classroom teaching. The Elementary Education page provides more information about the program and major.
While the primary focus of the Education Department is assisting students with preparation for teaching in the elementary grades, others who have an interest in teaching at the middle school or high school level may also benefit from participation in the program’s courses and interaction with the Department while studying at Massasoit Community College.
For students who intend to teach younger children, please visit the Child Care Education and Administration page for information on the PreK-2 transfer program.
Interested and currently enrolled students are invited to visit the Elementary Education office in LA115 on the Brockton Campus to discuss the Elementary Education area of study. Announcements related to Elementary Education can be found on the Massasoit Community College, Elementary Education Facebook page.
