Welcome to the education program at Mercer County Community College! If you are thinking about a career in education, Mercer can help you reach your goal. Teaching is a rewarding and demanding profession that requires significant academic preparation. If you would like to become a New Jersey certified public school teacher for grades pre-k through high school, you will need to obtain a Bachelor's degree and pass state exams. You can complete the first half of your studies at Mercer with the Associate of Arts (AA) in Education. If your career goal is to work as a teacher or assistant teacher in childcare centers, or as a paraprofessional in general and special education classrooms, Mercer can prepare you with the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Early Childhood and Special Education.

As you begin your studies, there are many things to consider. Federal and state requirements for certification, as well as the transfer process, make the education major multifaceted. Mercer can support you and help you understand your options. Please explore this website for an overview of the program, available resources, and pertinent contacts.
