The Associate of Arts in Teaching Secondary Education - Chemistry option provides the opportunity for 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 2 terms of algebra-based physics. 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 Community College 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 adviser.

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.
