The Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) is a new degree offering that allows students to choose to enter the education field without having to select a four-year university immediately. All four-year public universities are required to accept this degree as fully transferable into a bachelor’s degree program leading to initial teacher certification. There are three main degree offerings which include 60-66 semester hours of coursework. Students interested in EC-4, 4-8, Special Education and Bilingual Education will select the Generalist degree plan (major code 3587); and students who are interested in teaching at the 8th grade-12th grade level should follow the 8-12 degree plan (major code 3586). For Teacher’s Aide, see Education Aide.
This program is a THECB-approved Field of Study.
