Elementary Education, A.A.

Elementary Education (102)
Associate in Arts Degree

The Associate in Arts Degree in Education is designed to provide the basic courses necessary for transfer to a baccalaureate program in elementary education. Courses necessary to fulfill requirements for an Associate in Arts degree are included as well as courses important for elementary education specifically. This planner is recommended for course sequences. However, courses may be taken in alternative patterns so long as course prerequisites are met.

NOTE: Courses listed in the first/third semester will be scheduled in the fall; second/forth semester courses will be scheduled in the spring. The student is encouraged to use the curriculum planner to keep track of courses taken and those still needed. In some cases, one or more courses may be taken in a different order than indicated on the planner. However, individual course prerequisites must be observed.

Prerequisites/Corequisites – Some courses require another course be taken beforehand or at the same time. To check if a course has a prerequisite or corequisite, see the course description.
