At certain UNC institutions, EDU 216 may fulfill major requirements; at a majority of institutions, the course will transfer only as a free elective. Students should check with the university for the local transfer policy regarding EDU 216.

Recommended:

For electives, pre-education students in Elementary Education should select courses that will help meet a corollary studies area. These courses should be selected in conjunction with the requirements at each university, since available corollary studies may not be offered on each university campus. Corollary Studies comprise a minimum of 18 hours of community college or UNC-campus coursework in a choice of four interdisciplinary areas: (1) diversity studies; (2) global issues; (3) the arts; (4) math, science, and technology. Satisfying the UNC Board of Governors’ requirement for an academic concentration, corollary studies are appropriate for expanding and deepening the pre-service elementary teacher’s knowledge, appreciation, and skills in the area appropriate to the elementary-school classroom and curriculum. See your academic advisor for a more complete list of recommendations for corollary-studies areas.

Admission to the Major at a Public Senior Institution

Grade-point-average requirements vary, and admission is competitive across the several programs In Elementary Education. Minimum statewide requirements are the following:

  1. Minimum 2.5 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale
  2. Satisfactory passing scores as established by the State Board of Education on PRAXIS I PPST-Reading, PPST-Writing, PPST-Math.

Receiving institutions may have additional requirements, prerequisites, and/or proficiencies. Since these vary at receiving institutions, students should review the admission-to-teacher-education requirements for the institution(s) they anticipate attending.

**Hours will vary depending on course selection.

In order to be consistent with NC licensure areas, Middle Grades Education students should select courses from up to two (2) of the following areas: Social Sciences, English, Mathematics, Sciences. (Note: UNC-Asheville students major in an academic area and the selected 20 hours should be coordinated with their intended major/ program.) Typically offered academic concentrations are biology, English, history, mathematics, and psychology. See your academic advisor for a more complete list of recommendations for specific academic concentrations.

Admission to the Major at a Public Senior Institution
Grade-point-average requirements vary, and admission is competitive across the several programs In Special Education. Minimum statewide requirements are the following:

  1. Minimum 2.5 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale

The Associate in Fine Arts degree shall be granted for planned programs of study consisting of a minimum of 64 and a maximum of 65 semester hours of approved college transfer courses. (Ref. 23 NCAC 2E.0204) Within the degree program, the institution shall include opportunities for the achievement of competence in reading, writing, oral communication, fundamental mathematical skills, and the basic use of computers.

Courses are approved for transfer through the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement. Community college graduates who have earned 64 semester hours of academic credit in approved transfer courses with a grade of “C” or better in each course and an overall GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale will receive at least 64 semester hours of academic credit upon admission to a university.

Courses may also transfer through bilateral agreements between institutions. Courses offered through bilateral agreements may not transfer to all receiving institutions.

It is strongly recommended that students consider COM 120 or COM 231 in addition to the required literature course in the area of Humanities/Fine Arts.
