Students in southern Delaware have the opportunity to complete an Associate in Arts (AA) degree in Elementary Teacher Education on the University of Delaware Georgetown campus.

Program Coordinator: Scott Lykens

UD’s Associate in Arts two-year degree is equivalent to the first two years of the Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Teacher Education (BS.Ed) on the Newark campus. The Georgetown campus is the only campus at the University that offers a degree option that leads to the BS.Ed in four years.

The AA degree offers small class sizes and faculty dedicated to helping each student become successful. Students begin their education courses and field experiences in their first semester, enabling them to apply what they learn from their coursework and to develop their skills with children immediately. In addition, eligible students can participate in the SEED (Student Excellence Equals Degree) Scholarship program that provides free tuition during their two years on the Georgetown campus.
