Why Education?

Education is a rewarding field whose graduates are in demand. In our program you will learn the basics about the field of education and teaching, possible specializations, and the job outlook. You will increase your knowledge regarding race, gender, sexual identity, class, ability, and ethnicity and build the necessary skills to provide equity for your future students.  

Heartland can put you on track to transfer as a junior in an Illinois teacher education program like at ISU. Complete your associate degree and prepare to transfer to a 4-year program in teacher education.
