Education and Purpose
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Elementary Education (Grades 1-6) is a program designed for students who want to teach at the elementary school level.
Elementary school teachers are pivotal in a child’s educational success. They nurture a young student’s innate talent and inspire them to think, dream, learn, and create.
This demanding, high commitment program will prepare students to succeed in a teaching career upon graduation. Students will study early adolescent development, classroom management, instructional technology, teaching diverse populations and more.
With more than 100 required practicum hours in a variety of urban and rural settings, and 60 full official school days of student teaching, elementary education graduates will be fully prepared to enter the workforce.
