Education Pathway Programs

The Education Pathway focuses on career training for students interested in entering the workforce after graduation in the field of education.

While the primary focus of the programs in the Pathway is career training, the majors in the Pathway also transfer to four-year institutions for further study. In supporting our students’ desire for additional training and education, the programs in the Education Pathway have numerous articulation agreements with four-year colleges and universities throughout Maryland and out of state.

CCBC offers four different course series options for students interested in this career track (see options below). The instruction in these scenarios includes skills for relating well to children and their parents or caregivers.
