Middle Grades Education

Gordon State College offers an Associate of Arts Degree with a concentration in Teacher Education through the college transfer program. This program is designed to allow students to complete the first two years of course work leading to a baccalaureate degree. After graduation from Gordon, the program allows students to transfer their course work to another University System institution, continue their studies for an additional two years, and receive the baccalaureate degree.

Gordon transfer programs comply with the Core Curriculum of the University System of Georgia. Under the guidelines of the Core Curriculum, a student who completes the approved Core at Gordon State College or any particular Area within the Core may transfer this course work to any other state college, two-year college, senior college, or university within the University System without loss of credit.
