Secondary Education - Chemistry
Associate of Arts in Teaching
The Associate of Arts in Teaching Secondary Education - Chemistry option provides the opportunity for a seamless transfer to the following Maryland colleges and universities: Columbia Union College, Goucher College, Frostburg State University, Hood College and Towson University. A candidate for this degree will need to complete two terms of algebra-based physics. 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 College Catalog) to the 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.
