Autism Education Skills AGS Degree

The Autism Education curriculum provides a foundation in educating individuals with autism. It is designed for exposure to the key elements of educating individuals with autism. 

Students who want to pursue an associate degree can apply all 19 credits from the Autism Education Skills Certificate toward an Associate in General Studies (AGS) degree. Depending on the desired career path, discuss other options for an associate degree with an academic advisor.

Not all courses are offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor to develop a plan of study that works for them. Students planning to transfer are advised to check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides and discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
