Secondary Education - English
Associate of Arts in Teaching
The Associate of Arts in Teaching Secondary Education—English option provides the opportunity for a seamless transfer to English Education programs at Maryland four-year state and private colleges. To receive the degree, students must have a 2.750 GPA and submit qualifying scores as established by the Maryland State Superintendent of Schools on pre-professional basic skills test (e.g. SAT, ACT, PRAXIS/CORE) approved by the Maryland State Board of Education to the Carroll's Records Office prior to the final Carroll term. Students are encouraged to earn a minimum grade of C in all A.A.T. course requirements to ensure a smooth transfer and work with an Education faculty advisor.
The Introduction to Special Education course required by Carroll is a necessary requirement of the 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 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.
