YOUR PATH TO A BACHELOR'S DEGREE
Delaware Tech has established agreements with four-year colleges and universities that connect Delaware Tech associate degree programs with bachelor's degree programs to create smooth transfer opportunities for you. These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.
THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM
Delaware Tech's associate degree program in Elementary Education prepares students to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete their bachelor's degree and become certified to teach in an elementary school. Graduates of this option are prepared to enter the workforce immediately as a paraeducator (instructional assistant) in a school setting or they may choose to continue their education and prepare to become a K-6 grade elementary school teacher. Delaware State University's NCATE-accredited Elementary Education program prepares teachers to work with young children in public, private, and charter school systems. The program provides outstanding career preparation for K-6 teachers. Students learn to teach all academic subjects, with extra emphasis on literacy and multicultural/multiethnic classrooms. The program emphasizes direct, hands-on experience in real-world classrooms and incorporates the most current theories in learning, assessment, and child development.
