The undergraduate program is designed to prepare undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students to be classroom teachers in K-8 classrooms.


Because elementary teachers are generalists, the B.A. in Elementary Education gives students knowledge in literacy, math, science, and social studies. Every course, field experience, and practicum opportunity offered through the Elementary Education major and endorsements are intended to give students the confidence and capabilities to be effective teachers. Students have the opportunity to work with children in a variety of school settings and experience a range of teaching approaches that value reflection, cooperation, and conversation.
