CATALOG 2014-15

Associate of Arts Elementary Education (Major Code - EED)

The Associate of Arts Elementary Education (AAEE) degree is designed to serve two primary groups: (1) future teachers seeking entrance into teacher education programs through transfer to one of the Arizona public universities, and (2) teacher aides (current and new) seeking to comply with federal regulations. This degree allows students to complete their Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) requirements and to take a number of teacher education and/or early childhood education courses. To ensure seamless transfer, students must develop their specific program of study in close coordination with a Cochise College advisor.
