This curriculum prepares students to transfer to any secondary education mathematics program at a four-year college or university in the state of Maryland. The AAT articulates with all Maryland transfer programs in mathematics education. The program enables students to fulfill their General Education requirements, participate in fieldwork 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.
