"I'm sorry, we need to see some experience on your resume."

Have you heard this before but don't know how to get experience without the job? We know the degree doesn't always guarantee you a job after graduation.

That's why at BU Canton, you'll gain internship experience in your field beginning in year 1, so you'll graduate with a full resume and network to rely on.

We're now accepting applications for Fall so you can gain experience and education at an affordable cost!

Degree of study #7 - AA in Pre-Education Studies

This affordable degree track is a 2+2 program designed for students to complete the first two years at an extension site. After the initial two years, students will transition to finishing their Education degree at Bethel University. The goal of the AA is to foster students’ ability to think deeply, give them appropriate exposure to a K-12 classroom, and prepare them to finish their bachelor’s degree in education. The degree is especially well-poised to appeal to students who have an interest in Education, while allowing them experiences to determine their area of specialty within the field of education. 🎓
