Education Department

The Department of Education introduces aspiring teachers to the best practices to facilitate teacher leadership. The two-year program is designed to help students gain acceptance into the teacher preparation programs at four-year institutions. The college/freshman experience component forms the springboard for the continual processes of personal, intellectual, and academic development and exists to help students discover their innate ability to learn. Further, the physical education, health and recreation component adheres to fundamental and applied concepts of scientific study in the historical, social, psychological, environmental, experiential, and physical way of thinking and learning by offering educational, sports, and fitness activity classes with the emphasis on "wellness and fitness for life." The department curriculum is designed to meet academic, professional, physical, social and emotional needs of students.

This department includes all Pre-teacher Education Programs, including Early Childhood, and the College Experience and the Freshman Experience.

History, Geography, and Political Science Department

The Department of History, Geography and Political Science introduces the student to the social sciences and to the methodology employed in the disciplines. More specifically, the department examines: 1) through its history classes, the past record of human existence; 2) through its geography classes, the study of humankind's relationship to its physical environment; and 3) through its political science classes, the study of political processes, institutions, and cultures.


Psychology, Sociology, and Social Work Department

The Department of Psychology, Sociology, and Social Work has created programs of study designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a baccalaureate degree. The degrees of study within the department include the Associate of Science degree in Psychology, Sociology/Anthropology, and Social Work. The foundation of the curricula is General Education, with courses that emphasize skill development in areas such as cultural diversity, research, human behavior, social problems, and service learning. The faculty continuously seeks ways to combine classroom knowledge with technology and hands-on experience which, in the long run, only produce knowledgeable students.
