For students planning to teach physical education, Carroll offers this program as the recommended first two years of study. This program begins a solid foundation in education and exercise science. Students who intend to transfer should consult the College Catalog and adviser of the desired receiving institution to ensure that the proper courses are selected. If a student wishes to take alternative courses, this decision should be based on the requirements of the four-year college or university to which the student expects to transfer for the baccalaureate degree. Such selections must be made in consultation with faculty advisers at this college and after consideration of the requirements for graduation. Due to course prerequisites, students are strongly encouraged to meet with a faculty adviser and obtain a specific term-by-term planning guide for this program. 

Although Praxis I is not a degree requirement, students are encouraged to take Praxis I (an assessment of reading, writing and math skills) once general education requirements in English, math and reading (if applicable) are satisfied or at the completion of 24 credit hours, or present qualified scores on the SAT or ACT. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that Praxis I or qualified test scores are sent to Carroll's Records Office, MSDE, and the selected transfer colleges/universities. See page 108, “Important Information for Education Students” in the College Catalog. Students are encouraged to earn a minimum grade of C in all A.A.T. course requirements to ensure a smooth transfer and work with an Education faculty adviser.

* Students must be in good academic standing in order to participate in field experiences; one field experience allowed each term.
