Education Pathway

These represent sample pathways toward the Associate of Arts – Education Focus (AA-ED) at NC State. AA degrees are designed for straight transfer to a university while applied degrees are designed for work or transfer. These courses where noted are also guaranteed to individually transfer to any public Ohio college or university under the Ohio Transfer Module (general education). This is just a sample. There are numerous courses that could apply toward this pathway, and with noted exceptions they do not have to be taken in this order. For more information on these programs, go to the degrees page.
