The Associate of Arts Degree in Education provides freshman and sophomore level courses required for most students majoring in education. Education programs vary greatly at four-year 

institutions,  so the student should consult the catalog of the college or university of his/her choice for information on specific program requirements.

Criminal background checks are required for certain courses in this area. The background check will cover sexual offender information, general criminal history, and adult and child neglect information. Student financial aid may be used to cover the cost.
