The Jefferson College Teacher Education Program is designed with the future in mind--the futures of not only the pre-service teachers in the program, but also the futures of students whom program graduates will teach during their careers.
The Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) is a pre-professional statewide degree program designed to prepare students for transfer into a four-year teacher education program. Jefferson College’s AAT is comprised of 42 credit hours of general education, a 13-credit hour teacher education core, the first year experience requirement, a minimum of six additional credit hours in electives, and passing the Missouri General Education Assessment (MoGEA).
With the assistance of some outstanding professionals from Jefferson County and around the state, the Teacher Education Program and the AAT were developed to facilitate the development of highly-capable, professional teachers. In addition, by creating an academic culture that is responsive to the needs and diversity of pre-service teachers, the Teacher Education Program models the constructivist teaching philosophy.
The entire Jefferson College faculty will work with you to help you achieve success. Feel free to contact the teacher education faculty for advising. We want you to be successful in our program and in the classroom. Learn more about what the program has to offer by clicking the links below.
