College of Education

Great need for teachers - choose a career that makes a difference!

The College of Education at Daytona State College offers a variety of programs for individuals to further their education.

 Within the School of Education, individuals with an AA degree interested in pursuing a career in teaching may apply to one of the seven programs in the Bachelor of Science in Education (BSED). The Educator Preparation Institute (EPI), also in the School of Education, is a pathway for alternative teacher certification for individuals who already hold a bachelor's degree.

Teacher Re-certification - The Florida Department of Education requires that educators earn six semester hours of college credit every five years as part of their certificate renewal. Our courses can also help with reinstatement requirements.
