28 Associate of Science Programs in Education 2023


An associate’s degree gives students a general or technical education in a field of study, providing a solid foundation for many careers. Students can pursue this award as a terminal degree or for transfer credits to be applied toward a bachelor’s degree.

What is an Associate of Science in Education? The degree is a course of study typically lasting one or two years that provides students with a firm grasp of instruction theory. Some programs also offer tracks that are specific to teaching certain subjects, such as language, history or math, or courses that focus on educating students from diverse backgrounds. Students sometimes can specialize in specific age groups, such as early childhood, elementary, secondary and more. Internships may be available as part of some programs.

The associate’s degree typically leads to higher salaries and more career opportunities for graduates when compared with non-graduates, and associate’s degrees or higher may be required by various employers within education.

The cost of an Associate of Science degree can vary quite a bit depending on many factors, including the location of the institution and whether the coursework is delivered in-person or online. Prospective students should reach out directly to schools in order to obtain specific tuition information.

Although becoming a certified teacher at a school typically requires a four-year degree, an associate’s degree can offer a lower-cost means of completing the first two years for students who wish to pursue this career path. Often, graduates can find immediate employment in after-school care programs and early childhood education programs, such as preschool and daycare, as teachers. Those with a keen interest in helping those with behavior or physical limitations may find assistantships within public or private schools.
