MEd in Elementary Education

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 elementary and ESL endorsements with the potential to add bilingual, learning behavior specialist (LBS1) specialists, and middle grades endorsements. 

This full-time field-based program is designed for individuals seeking to secure an initial teaching license to teach in elementary schools, whether that be in general education, special education, or ESL and bilingual education. An integral component of our teacher preparation program is classroom experience where candidates engage directly with students and educators while developing their pedagogical expertise. 

The MEd in Elementary Education program is now accepting applications for cohorts beginning in Summer 2021. We have a variety of cohort options both on campus and with Chicago-area school district partners seeking to close teacher shortages.
