Pending IBHE approval –   Individuals planning to teach in high school or middle school can obtain an AAT 
Degree  in  Teaching  Special  Education.  During  the  first  two  years  of  study  at  Rend  Lake  College,  full‐time 
students should complete requirements for an Associate of Arts in Teaching Special Education Degree. This 
degree  provides  students  with  the  program  equivalent  of  the  first  two  years  of  most  four‐year  teacher 
education programs in science.  Students should always contact the transfer institution before completing the 
outlined curriculum.  The degree is comprised of general education courses, professional education courses, 
and  courses  in  the  science  major  area.    The  eleven  Illinois  professional  Teaching  Standards,  the  Technology 
Standards for all Teachers, and the Core Language Arts Standards are addressed in this curriculum.  Students 
will  be  required  to  pass  the  Enhanced  Test  of  Basic  Skills  for  program  completion.    This  test  will  be 
administered no later than the point at which the student accumulated 45 semester hours.  Education majors 
should  apply  to  the  four‐year  College  or  university  up  to  one  year  before  transfer.  The  student  is  not 
guaranteed  admission  into  a  baccalaureate  degree  program  merely  by  completing  this  curriculum.    Most 
baccalaureate degree programs require a G.P.A. of 2.5 or higher for admission.  All students will be required 
to successfully complete a background check upon registration into EDUC 1101.  5                  Total = 64 Hours 
    NOTE: Please be advised this is strictly a recommended outline of coursework for this major. Specific coursework will vary
depending on transfer institution requirements. Rend Lake College A.A. and A.S. requirements are outlined on Pages 52 and 54.
Consult with your counselor or advisor for more information.
