The Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) is a specialized academic associate degree program designed to transfer in its entirety to a baccalaureate program that leads to initial Texas teacher certification. The curriculum provided in this associate degree is approved by the Texas Coordinating Board.

Through the curricular activities, the students will be able: 1) to acquire an overview of the teaching profession in PK-12 level, and 2) to gain an awareness of teaching diverse learners. Students considering education as a major must be free of a felony or misdemeanor convictions for any crime directly related to the duties and responsibilities of the teaching profession.
