Associate of Science in Teaching Program Requirements


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

The community colleges and universities of the Tennessee Board of Regents system have joined together to develop a common core of courses for prospective elementary school teachers consisting of an introduction to teaching and technology course and standards-based mathematics and science courses. The common core for the Associate of Science in Teaching (A.S.T.) degree allows prospective teachers to transfer from Pellissippi State to any TBR university as juniors and without loss of credit. In addition to the curriculum requirements listed below, students must attain a cumulative grade-point average of 2.75, successfully complete the Praxis I exam and achieve satisfactory disposition evaluation ratings. For those students who have not completed two units of a single foreign language, either at high school, another college, or through an approved examination, the deficiency(ies) must be removed before the student may transfer to a TBR university.
