The MEd in Elementary Education is designed for individuals looking to make a difference in the lives of children. Graduates of the program will receive a Professional Educator License (PEL) with an elementary endorsement.

This is a full-time field-based program designed for individuals who are just entering the teaching field and require an initial teaching license. An integral component of our teacher preparation program is classroom experience. This allows students to be involved in guided observations, interviewing students, teachers, parents, and community members, conducting small group or whole class instruction, and engaging with formal and informal educational communities.  View our comparison table (PDF) to see some of the way in which Loyola's TLLSC differs from traditional teacher preparation programs.

The MEd in Elementary Education program has suspended admission until Fall 2021.
