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.

Students are strongly encouraged to consult an advisor and the transfer institution prior to enrolling in courses to ensure that all selected courses will transfer.
When students complete an Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree at MACC they will be able to: AAT-program-outcomes. This is our program promise.
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.
You are required to have a background check on file with the Coordinator of Teacher Education at the beginning of the semester in which you are enrolled in EDU225. Copies of our background check must be offered to all schools you visit.
The Education Department uses the Family Care Safety Registry (FCSR) for student background checks. If you think you are not already registered with the FCSR you will need to do so in order to request your background clearance. If you need to register with the FCSR for your background clearance, the fastest way to get your results is to register online. This will be a one-time registration so you will not be required to pay for future clearances. You will need your social security number and a valid debit or credit card in order to register.
A copy of your screening results will be mailed to you not to Moberly Area Community College. You must bring, fax, or email a copy of your letter to Robert Williams, Coordinator of Teacher Education. The coordinator’s fax number is 660-263-6400. **Your instructor may also request a copy for their files.**
Your instructor for EDU225 will be sent an Observation Name Tag.
You are responsible for buying a red MACC lanyard, wearing the name tag, and carrying your MACC ID at all times when visiting schools or working with PreK-12 students.
Please contact Robert L. Williams if you have any questions.
