If your career goal is teaching, HGTC's Associate in Arts - Education Transfer Path is the right path for you. Teachers are in high demand in South Carolina, and qualifying teachers can have their student loans forgiven through the South Carolina Teachers Loan Program

To assist students with their career and education goals, within the Associate in Arts the College has established career pathways intended for advising purposes. The career pathways include a limited number of courses specific for the career or discipline in which a student wishes to pursue. Students choosing a career pathway within the A.A. degree will graduate HGTC with the Associate in Arts degree.

HGTC has 2+2 transfer agreements in place with Coastal Carolina University for the following teacher preparation programs: Early Childhood, Elementary Ed, Middle Level Education, Special Education, and Physical Education. Students who are interested in transferring to a Teacher Education program at Coastal Carolina University or other senior institution should contact their Academic Advisor for assistance in course selection. It is also important for you to contact the Transfer Admissions Office of the transfer institution early in order to determine appropriate courses for transfer. 

Admission to the Professional School of Education at senior institutions requires passing scores on the PRAXIS I; HGTC offers PRAXIS preparation opportunities (EDU 102).
