ASSOCIATE OF ARTS IN EDUCATION
The Associate of Arts in Education is a 2-year degree that prepares students to be an influencer and educator of the next generation in public and private schools. By itself, the Associate of Arts in Education does not lead to teacher licensure, however, it is the first step in the licensure process, or, in other words, the first two years of a 4-year process. SEU’s AA in Education includes general education courses as well as 15 credit hours of beginning Education major courses all taught from a Biblical worldview, which is difficult to find in education programs at most universities.
Pathways to licensure after graduating with the AA in Education include continuing on to complete years 3 and 4 of a (4-year) Bachelor of Science in Education degree program at the main campus of Southeastern University in Lakeland (there are many education degree programs at SEU from which to choose); or transferring to a college or university in Ohio to complete years 3 and 4 of a bachelor degree in education leading to teacher licensure in the state of Ohio. We are excited to offer this degree program as part of a pathway to teacher licensure, and we are committed to growing further opportunities for education majors on our campus in the near future.
