Associate of Science in Teaching, K-5, 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 K-5 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 a prospective teacher to transfer from Pellissippi State to any TBR university as a junior and without loss of credit. In addition to the curriculum requirements listed below, students must obtain a cumulative grade point average of 2.75, successfully complete the Praxis Core 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, at another college or through an approved examination, the deficiency(ies) must be removed before the student may transfer to a TBR university.
