Towson University (TU) and the College of Southern Maryland (CSM) offer a unique 2 + 2 program for certification in grades 1-6. The first two years you complete the Associate of Arts in in Teaching (AAT) at CSM. You then apply to TU for the second two years of the program, become a TU student, yet complete your junior and senior years at schools and CSM campuses in Calvert, Charles, and/or St. Mary’s County Public School classrooms.
The ELED program is a cohort program which admits a limited number of students each year, on a first come, first served basis. Students are encouraged to apply and submit all required documents early. Towson University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and approved by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE).
