PEARL CITY, Hawaii — Leeward Community College is offering new pathways to teaching with the launch of two new online, accelerated programs aimed at helping students quickly complete an associate's degree in teaching or an alternative certification to teach career and technical education in Hawai'i's high schools.

Leeward's Associate in Arts in Teaching (AAT) faculty invites the public to learn more about these new programs at an information session on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013 at the Leeward campus, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in Room GT-105.

Attendees will be able to learn more about the AAT degree, including the new 18-month accelerated degree program option and an Alternative Certification for Career/Technical Education (CTE) licensure route. Instructors, counselors, student success specialists, power mentors and currently enrolled students will be available to answer questions. Degree requirements, support services available for Leeward CC education majors, and financial aid options will also be covered at the information session.

Leeward Community College's associate's in teaching degree offers a solid liberal arts core and specific education classes that prepare you as a para-educator or to transfer to a four-year university's teacher education program. The AAT degree has articulation agreements in place with UH Manoa, UH West O'ahu, and Chaminade University. For more information and to RSVP, call (808) 455-0467 or email pmdc@hawaii.edu.
