Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT)

Students interested in acquiring knowledge and skills in the field of Education can take the courses offered in our Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) Program.  Courses within the program align with State Board for Educator Certification Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities Standards.  The degree plan satisfies the core requirements for baccalaureate programs at four-year institutions that lead to initial Texas teacher certification. 

Field experiences are an integral part of becoming a professional teacher.  Courses that are field-based require outside classroom time for observation and experiential learning in Texas Education Agency accredited schools.
