This Associate in Applied Science-Transfer (AAS-T) is a dual purpose degree built upon the technical courses required for job preparation. It includes college-level general Education courses, enabling the student to transfer to a select number of baccalaureate institutions.
Students completing the AAS-T Early Childhood Education and Diversity Studies degree will also earn three separate State ECE Stackable Certificates. The completion of the degree and certificate program prepares graduates to seek employment in child care centers, Head Start, family child care homes, private preschools, children’s home, institutions and other programs serving children from birth through 8 years of age. This curriculum provides meaningful instruction for parents, foster parents, and persons working with young children/students as ECE teachers, instructional aides, or Paraeducators. Diversity Studies encompasses the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for students to understand power relations; to function responsibly in a diverse, global society; and to gain a critical awareness of the social construction of race, ethnicity, gender, class, sexual orientation, disability, culture, religion and age in local, national and global contexts.
All transfer degrees, have basic requirements for graduation:
- Completion of 90 applicable college level quarter credit hours
- GRC cumulative GPA must be a minimum of 2.00. Note: A higher admission GPA may be required at the receiving institution
- Transfer credits with less than a “D” grade are not counted to satisfy a graduation requirement
- At least 24 of the 90 quarter credits for a degree must be completed in residence at Green River College
