You will get experience in the classroom early and often!
An Elementary Education certificate permits teaching in grades K-5 all subjects and K-8 self-contained classroom, and, if desired, grades 6-8 in a content area major or minor.
The Elementary Education major includes required education courses, professional sequence courses, elementary education content and pedagogy courses.
Elementary Education majors select from two program options known as Option 1: Core Subject or Option 2: Comprehensive Major. Within each of these programs, several teaching majors and teaching minors are available.
Option 1: Core Subject is appropriate for students who wish to focus on one subject, particularly at the middle school level or for those students who wish to teach all subjects in grades 3-5 in a self-contained elementary or middle school classroom. Teaching majors and minors include Integrated Science group major or group minor, Language Arts major or minor, Mathematics (Elementary) minor (major in development), and Social Studies group major.
Option 2: Comprehensive Major is appropriate for those wishing to teach children from birth to age 8 with the Early Childhood Education minor; or French, German or Spanish major or minor in the elementary and/or middle schools; or Special Education—Learning Disabilities (K-12 major).
