Associate of Science in Pre-Secondary Education: Life Sciences University of Cincinnati



Course info



Education is the profession of teaching. Teachers act as coaches, using interactive discussions and “hands-on” approaches to help students learn and apply concepts in subjects such as science, mathematics or English. They provide the tools and the environment for their students to learn abstract concepts, solve problems and develop critical thought processes.

Secondary education is teaching that concentrates on grades seven through twelve.

Secondary school teachers help students delve even more deeply into subjects introduced in elementary and middle school, and continue exposing them to more information about the world. Secondary school teachers specialize in a specific subject, such as English, Spanish, mathematics, history or biology.

Teachers also play a vital role in the development of their students. They often become role models for adolescents. What students learn and experience during these years can change their views of themselves and the world, and may affect their later success or failure in college, work and their personal lives.

A Bachelor’s degree in education is the minimum educational requirement for entering the teaching profession. This program provides you with the first two years toward completion of your Bachelor’s degree, which allows you to apply for selective admissions to complete that degree at the UC College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services.


You must have the ability to communicate, inspire trust and confidence, and motivate students, as well as understand your educational and emotional needs. You must be able to recognize and respond to individual and cultural differences in students. Flexibility and adaptability are important. You should also be organized, dependable, patient and creative. You must be able to work cooperatively and communicate effectively with other teachers, support staff, parents and members of the community. You should also respect and enjoy working with adolescents.


With your bachelor’s degree and proper licensing, your employment opportunities include becoming a teacher, instructor and tutor. You may teach in public or private schools.

Advanced degrees are generally required for roles as a director, principal, superintendent, librarian and guidance counselor.
