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.
