Teacher Education

Career Coach buttonThe Teacher Education Program prepares you to instruct children in Pre-K through 12th grade.

If you are interested in becoming a classroom teacher, you may choose to pursue an Associate of Arts in Teaching degree.

If you are interested in becoming a teacher's assistant, you should pursue the Teacher's Assistant Certificate.

Associate of Arts in Teaching (A.A.T.)

The two-year Associate of Arts in Teaching (A.A.T.) degree provides a foundation for you to transfer to a four-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 one of the following specializations:

  • Early Childhood–6th
  • Grades 4–8
  • 8th –12th

Courses are offered at Northeast and South Campuses.
