DMACC's Liberal Arts Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees provide the flexibility and opportunity to get a solid start on your four-year degree in Education while earning an associate degree.
To become a teacher, a student must graduate from an accredited teacher training institution. Students attend DMACC and then transfer to a public or private college to complete a teacher education program.
*It is recommended that students complete SPC 101 and either EDU 213 or EDU 245 as part of a DMACC Learning Community Block.
- The prerequisite for EDU 218 is a 2.0 GPA, EDU 213, and instructional approval.
- Individual DMACC transfer planning sheets are available that are tailored for Drake University, Grand View University, Iowa State University, University of Northern Iowa, Simpson College and Upper Iowa University.
- Praxis, C-Base or other tests must be passed before being accepted into any teacher college in Iowa. Take this test by fall of your sophomore year.
- Check with your transfer institution on specific requirements.
