Education Certificate & AA

Certificate or Associate of Arts in Education

The Certificate and Associate of Arts (AA) in Education degrees are one and two year programs, respectively, that are valuable for those seeking employment as educational assistants in K-12 education or for those working in early childhood settings.  Both degrees are also useful for those wishing to enter into social services types of employment.


An added benefit is that all courses listed for Certificate may apply toward the AA and the AA in Education applys toward a bachelor’s degree in the Multidisciplinary Studies.  Both the Certificate and the AA support the student in advancing toward an elementary teacher preparation program.
