Program Description
The Education Careers program prepares future teachers and combines the Teacher Academy of Maryland (TAM) and Early Childhood Studies. It explores the teaching professions in early childhood, elementary and secondary education. During the eight-course sequence, students explore human growth and development, local, national and global issues in education, effective teaching strategies and complete an internship at the level a student wishes to teach. In addition, students explore theories of development, developmentally appropriate practices and implement lessons in our licensed onsite childcare facility.

Internships at the level a student wishes to teach are completed senior year. 

Prerequisite: Students must be CPR/First Aid Safety certified prior to beginning their junior year.
