To teach young children in Kansas public schools, teachers must be certified by the Statepdf of Kansas upon completion of a four-year degree. Students interested in elementary education (K-6) or early childhood education (birth to age 8) are encouraged to complete the Associate of Arts Degree prior to transfer. These course recommendations are intended for students who are undecided about a transfer school. Students who have selected a transfer school should consult the catalog of that school and an academic advisor. College catalogs and transfer guides for many four-year colleges are available through Career Services. Students should be aware that admission to the junior year of an education, teacher licensure program is competitive and that each four-year college has specific admissions requirements including a minimum grade point average and a test of basic skills.
