Specialist in Community College Teaching (SCCT)
The Specialist in Community College Teaching Program provides a sixth-year intermediate
degree to prepare teachers and administrators for the Community College. Because the
enrollee in a community college tends to be somewhat different from typical college, university,
or trade school students, specialized personnel are needed to ensure that the investments
made by students and institutions are maximally and mutually beneficial.
The teaching emphasis program of study will focus mainly upon the major field of
specialization with adequate opportunities for breadth of preparation in the specialty area
and cognate areas, and a background in research methods. Major fields of specialization
are presented under degrees offered in the General Information section of the Bulletin. The
administration-emphasis program of study will focus on a combination of generic higher education
administration courses and specialized community college courses.
