About this course

The Associate of Arts (A.A.) in Teacher Education is designed for students entering secondary education fields not covered by the A.A.T. Students planning to major in middle school (4-8th grade) as well as physical education, music, health, and art (Pre-K-12th grade) are encouraged to meet with the Education faculty advisor. 

Although the successful completion of a pre-professional basic skills test (e.g. SAT, ACT, Praxis Core) approved by the Maryland State Board of Education is not a degree requirement, students are encouraged to complete the basic skills assessment once general education requirements in English, math and reading (if applicable) are satisfied. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that qualified test scores are sent to MSDE and the selected transfer colleges/universities. Students are encouraged to earn a minimum grade of C in all A.A. Teacher Education course requirements to ensure a smooth transfer and work with an Education faculty advisor.
