The Teacher Education Transfer Program AAT (Associate of Arts in Teaching) comprises a curriculum that provides the first two years of a four-year bachelor's degree and teacher certification. This curriculum prepares students to transfer to any secondary education Spanish program at a four-year college or university in the state of Maryland. The Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) articulates with all Maryland transfer programs in teaching Spanish at the secondary level. The program enables students to fulfill their general education requirements, participate in field work experiences, and complete a core of professional education coursework appropriate for the first two years of teacher preparation. To earn the AAT students must achieve a minimum of a  2.75 cumulative GPA and present acceptable scores on a state-approved basic skills test.

Please note: "This Introduction to Special Education course required by Montgomery College is a necessary requirement of the College's Secondary AAT degree but is not sufficient to meet all special education or inclusion course requirements for four-year teacher education programs. Students may be required to take additional special education or inclusion courses a a part of the requirements for a baccalaureate degree and teacher education certification at four-year institutions."
