: 602

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 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 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.


Participation in field experiences with Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS)  is an important component of all teacher education transfer programs at Montgomery College.  Completion of fingerprinting for state and federal level background checks (or documentation of recent prior completion) is mandatory for enrollment in any course requiring experiences in MCPS.  Further information on background checks may be found on the School of Education website at
