Note: Math and Science courses are in the hands-on discovery approach
and are aimed at preparing students to teach the elementary curriculum.

Field Experiences take place in schools surrounding Prince George’s Community College and require 15 hours of observation (EDU 2330) or observation and small group participation (EDU 2340 and EDU 2350) with a one hour seminar every other week.
Certain courses are pre-requisite for other courses. Psychology 1010 must be taken before taking Psychology 206 or 203.
English 1010 must be taken before taking Education 2000. If a student has a high Reading placement score, they may petition the Department Chair for an over-ride to this requirement.
MAT 1050 must be taken before MAT 1060 or 1160.
