Program Description This Associate in Applied Science-T (AAS-T) in Early Childhood Education is a professional technical degree with a core of general education courses commonly accepted in university level transfer programs. The degree is designed to prepare graduates to enter into employment in early childhood (infancy to prekindergarten) program settings, but also provide some transferable credits should a student pursue a four-year degree at a later point.
