AAT – Associate of Arts in Teaching

Associate of Arts in Teaching
(Effective UG22)

All Missouri community colleges offer the same Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree option for students who want to transfer to a 4-year college or university to pursue a bachelor’s degree in teacher education. Most public and private 4-year colleges and universities have agreed to articulate the AAT with their bachelor’s degree programs.

The AAT curriculum is based on MO-Step standards and mid-preparation benchmarks approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). This common curriculum ensures that you will meet the competencies identified by DESE at the completion of the second year of postsecondary education.

This academic map is based upon the AAT degree requirements as outlined in the academic catalog. In order for you to graduate in two years, specific courses and other requirements (e.g. prerequisites) must be met in a timely manner. It is important that you, when possible and appropriate, enroll in any needed developmental coursework during the first semester(s) of enrollment. Additionally, enrolling for courses during the summer session is an option and can reduce your regular course load and allow you to stay on track to graduate in two years. Finally, keep in mind this map does not substitute for academic advisement. If you have questions, see your advisor and refer to the MACC website for current information.

Additional Graduation Requirement
Missouri law, included in Senate Bill 807, requires every college student pursuing an associate’s or bachelor’s degree at a public institution to pass the Missouri Higher Education Civics Achievement Examination with at least a 70 percent to graduate. The rule will apply to the incoming class of first-time college students in the fall of 2019 and all students thereafter.

This academic map is not a contract, either expressed or implied, between MACC and the student, but represents a flexible program of the current curriculum which may be altered from time to time to meet the academic objectives of the college. MACC specifically reserves the right to modify, delete, or add to any academic map at any time within the student’s period of study at the college.
