Middle Grades Education A.S.


Middle grades matter.

Children ages 10 to 15 undergo a tremendous period of dramatic change and cognitive growth. Learn how teachers structure their instruction for early adolescents, laying the foundation to ensure their students’ later college and career readiness.

Nashville State’s Middle Grades Education Associate of Science degree prepares students for successful careers working with students in grades four through eight. Complete the two-year transfer degree prepared to pursue your bachelor’s degree and become a state-certified, licensed teacher.

Build your foundation.

Design the Middle Grades Education AS degree at Nashville State with the transfer university program of your choice in mind. Consult your NSCC program advisor and the catalog from the transfer university throughout the advising/registration process to avoid a loss of credits in the transfer process.
