Shasta College offers two associate degrees for students preparing to become elementary school teachers:

  • Elementary Teacher Education Associate in Arts - Transfer
  • University Studies - Liberal Studies - Teaching Prep Associate of Arts

A counselor can help you determine which degree is best for you. After completing one of the degrees, future teachers transfer to a university to complete a bachelor degree in liberal studies and then enter a teacher credential program. 

Shasta College offers an introductory course to the field of education and a worksite learning course for students who would like documented volunteer or paid work experience in education.
