The Teacher Assistant Level 3 microcredential is designed for teacher assistants who have already earned the Teacher Assistant Level 2 microcredential from Jefferson. To reach level 3, a student must complete nine college credits. The three college courses will enable students to demonstrate competency in public speaking (STA 151), American History (HIS 150), and child and adolescent psychology (PSY 220).

Students who complete the Teacher Assistant Level 3 microcredential by earning an additional nine college credits may later enroll in one of Jefferson's degree programs. Teacher Assistant Level 3 course requirements fit into Jefferson’s Childhood Education program, Early Childhood, and Humanities and Social Science, with transfer pathways for a teaching certificate at a four-year teacher preparation institution.

When students complete the Teacher Assistant Level 3 microcredential, they will be able to: 

  • Demonstrate Knowledge of major milestones and principles of physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional development in childhood.
  • Learn to communicate with adults and children.
