Associate of Arts in Teaching

The Associate of Arts in Teaching/Elementary Education or Elementary Special Education program provides the opportunity for a seamless transfer to an Elementary education and/or Elementary Special Education program at Maryland state and private colleges. This program also articulates to Stevenson University’s Middle School Education baccalaureate degree and Maryland state and private Elementary and Secondary Special Education programs. To receive the degree, students must have a 2.750 GPA, begin development of their professional teaching portfolio, and pass the Praxis I or present qualifying scores (see page 108 of the latest College Catalog) to the Records Office prior to the final Carroll term. Students are encouraged to earn a minimum grade of C in all AAT course requirements to ensure a smooth transfer and work with an Education faculty advisor.

The Introduction to Special Education course required by Carroll Community College is a necessary requirement of the College’s A.A.T. degree, but is not sufficient to meet all special education or inclusion course requirements for four-year teacher education programs. Students may be required to take additional special education or inclusion courses as a part of the requirements for a baccalaureate degree and teacher education certification at four-year institutions.

* Students must be in good academic standing in order to participate in field experiences; one field experience allowed each term.
