Tennessee Transfer Pathway and 2+2 Degree Program

Transfer Pathway

A partnership between twelve Community Colleges, the Tennessee Transfer Pathway is a unique partnership designed to meet the professional needs of students preparing to teach at the early childhood or elementary level. Students in the program will complete four years of study and receive a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Early Childhood Education or Elementary Education, K–5. The first two years of the program are completed by earning an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree in Early Childhood Education or an Associate of Science in Teaching (A.S.T.) degree in Elementary Education at a Community College.  The successful student will earn the Bachelor of Science and licensure in the respective licensure area.
