Liberty University Online’s Associate of Arts in Education (A.A. in Education) equips students with the specialized knowledge, insight, and skills needed to further their education and career.

The A.A. in Education prepares students from a Christian perspective, providing a solid foundation in educational behavior and development. Coursework also offers insight into current trends, including the study of theories and methodologies that will be of use in Christian, private, and public child care facilities, churches, schools, and homes. Students are given the chance to evaluate methods of teaching and instruction, while being taught the skills to establish lesson plans for educational planning.

Liberty Online’s A.A. in Education provides a solid foundation to continue on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Education. 

This program will not qualify you to sit for state or ACSI licensure tests.
