The objective of the education curriculum at Lansing Community College is to help future educators begin their growth toward becoming professional teachers. We emphasize "reflective teaching," with "practical experience" and "modeling."
We endeavor to introduce a conceptual base, an awareness of basic terms, current trends, and practical perspectives/realities that future educators need to know. The program facilitates further academic pursuit of a career in education.
The Lansing Community College Introductory Education Program is part of the Social Science and Humanities Department. It includes two basic courses, but also embraces courses in Educational Psychology and Child Development.
Schools of education differ in philosophy and specific requirements, therefore we encourage students to review the curriculum guide for the college or university they will transfer to, or contact the specific school of education and inquire about specific courses they will require.
