EducationThe Education curriculum at Triton College provides students with the opportunity to develop a comprehensive overview of the field of education. At Triton College, students can meet most of the general education requirements for Illinois State Teacher Certification and some of the professional education requirements for certification. The specific type of teaching certification the student is seeking will determine which courses should be completed.

To learn more about careers in education and to plan a program of study, including identifying the teacher preparation program of interest, students are advised to contact the advising department to be directed to the  counselor(s) for education.

Students who intend to transfer are advised to complete the foreign language courses required by their intended transfer institution, college within a university, and/or major, prior to transferring.
