The Associate of Science in Teaching degree prepares students to succeed in a teacher education degree program. Students will complete the foundations of education courses needed to move directly into the Teacher Education Program at UW-Superior in a cost-effective manner and learner-centered environment. Students will also receive individualized academic advising to help them transition into the Teacher Education Program. Completion of the A.S. degree satisfies University Studies requirements at UW-Superior and other University of Wisconsin System universities.
60 credits required that represent the courses to be completed in alignment with UW-System guidelines for associate degrees. A minimum cumulative GPA (based upon calculation of UW-Superior’s Honors GPA) of 2.75 is required for admission into the Teacher Education Program at UWS.
In addition to preparing students for transition to licensure as a teacher, this program can provide foundational knowledge and skills to serve as a paraprofessional, educational assistant, or substitute teacher in PK-12 schools or in other learning settings.
