But knowing how to teach is different from knowing what to teach—and both are equally important. That’s why we’ll provide you with opportunities to observe in an elementary classroom setting for each and every undergraduate course you take.
And you won’t just observe. Once you’ve grown familiar with teaching, you’ll have the chance to manage an elementary classroom yourself for a full semester, including creating lesson plans, instructing students and maintaining authority.
The Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education Grades K-6 degree program also allows for an optional specialization in either of the two following areas. This specialization can be completed without adding additional time to the four-year degree plan.
