Education Transfer Program

Education Transfer Program

Maria College of Albany - Albany, NY

  • Associate Degree

The Education Transfer program prepares students for transfer to four-year institutions to pursue childhood, middle childhood or secondary education degrees and certification with the career objective to become teachers. Students will take courses in educational theory and practice, which includes field observations and participation, as well as a substantial number of liberal arts courses to ensure successful transfer to either an education or liberal arts four-year degree. The program goal is to ensure that graduates reach a level of accomplishment comparable to that of quality four-year college education programs, and that all credit hours earned are granted for significant achievement only. Successful students will demonstrate an understanding of the essential components of the teaching and learning process in academic settings, as well as current educational trends and practices in diverse learning settings. A student may repeat an Education course only once. A student who receives a “C-” or less in an education course for two consecutive semesters may not return to the program. General Studies, Letter of Intent students, who wish to apply (or re-apply) to the Education Program, must schedule an appointment with the chairperson. The interview process will include a review of the student’s course work, attendance and preparation. Graduates of the program will transfer to four-year colleges to complete either a degree in education or a degree in liberal arts. This program offers an opportunity for liberal arts students to explore their interest in education without jeopardizing their ability to complete the liberal arts concentration for graduation. As Maria College already offers degrees in Early Childhood Education and Liberal Arts, the addition of the transfer program will benefit students as it provides flexibility to the current program offerings.
