Emphasis Area – PreK-12 Education
The PreK-12 Education emphasis gives students an introduction into teaching in an elementary or secondary school. It is designed for students to complete the first two years of a four-year teaching degree program, earning their Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts. Students then transfer to an accredited teacher’s education program at a public or private four-year college or university.
Starting your education major at Hawkeye will allow you to have practical experience with students in local schools beginning on day one. The classes you will take have been designed to allow you to gain practical insight into the teaching profession and offer many opportunities to work with local students.

- Public/private school teacher
- Paraeducator (with a two-year degree)
