Description

The Bachelor of Science in Education in Trade and Industry Education is designed for those individuals whose training and work experience is in a trade and/or industry and want to teach in a career technical education setting.

Admission Requirements

Students admitted to the College of Education, Health, and Human Services as freshmen must have been fully admitted to the university. Admission to the college does not guarantee admission to a major and/or admission to professional coursework for a selective admission program. To be admitted directly into a teacher education program and Community Health, it is required that new freshmen have a 2.75 high school GPA and 16 units of college preparatory curriculum or a 21 ACT or 980 SAT score. Students who do not meet the GPA requirements of their intended major may enroll as pre-majors for selected programs or EHHS General until which time they have the required 2.75 GPA.

Students seeking admission to this program must meet all professional requirements for admission to advanced study. A maximum of 100 students will be admitted to this program each academic year. A minimum ACT composite score of 21 (980 SAT combined critical reading and math score) OR a 2.75 cumulative high school grade point average and all 16 of the recommended college preparatory units is required.Students seeking admission to this program must meet all professional requirements for admission to advanced study and have a minimum cumulative 2.75 GPA in all previous undergraduate coursework. Because of the instituted enrollment management plan, meeting the above requirements does not automatically provide students admittance to the early childhood education major. Faculty will select the most qualified applicants based upon the number of available student spaces, students’ standardized test scores, essay, interview and cumulative GPA. Students should contact the Vacca Office of Student Services, 304 White Hall, during the first year of study to inquire into the procedures associated with admission to advanced study and selective admission to the early childhood education program. Students transferring from another university should meet with an academic advisor in 304 White Hall at least one semester prior to transferring.
