The Associate of Arts (AA) degree in Elementary Education (EDU) serves two professional outcomes.  First, the degree meets the requirements for the first two years of a four-year teacher preparation program. Aligning closely with Montana’s university requirements, the 金沙赌场网站 plan of study provides students with equivalent credit transfer to colleges within Montana’s university system, but strongly advises students to consult their preferred transfer-university’s catalog.* Second, students with an AA in Education qualify for positions as teaching aids, paraprofessionals, or teaching assistants in the public elementary schools, Head Start, and child care facilities.
