Our Teacher Education Program prepares you to instruct children in Pre-K through 12th grade.
Associate of Arts in Teaching (A.A.T.)
Our 2-year Associate of Arts in Teaching (A.A.T.) degree provides a foundation for you to transfer to a 4-year university for a bachelor's degree leading to teacher certification.
The A.A.T. no longer requires completion of TECA courses for Early Childhood majors; however, TECA courses are still offered for transfer to universities.
Coursework is determined by choosing 1 of the following specializations:
- Early Childhood–6th
- Grades 4–8
- 8th –12th
Courses are offered at Northeast and South campuses.
Criminal Background Checks
A criminal background check will be required to enroll in any EDUC or TECA course. You are assessed this $23 fee once a year.
