Welcome to Education

Do you enjoy working with children and adolescents? Would you like to become a teacher? The Education Department at Glendale Community College offers the foundation courses necessary for students interested in pursuing an Early Childhood (Birth-3rd Grade), Elementary (1-8), Secondary (7-12), or Special Education (K-12) degree.


GCC Teacher Club. Meetings are held regularly throughout the semester. For more information, contact Heather Merrill or Nancy Oreshack.

Attention Students. The State of Arizona requires Identity Verified Fingerprint (IVP) clearance cards for all students engaged in a classroom field experience. EDU 221 requires a 30-hour field experience. To avoid any delay, students should begin the fingerprint clearance process prior to the start of classes. Fingerprint packets are available in the Office of Program Articulation, located in the CCS building or from the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
