Overview

The BSEd in Elementary Education is grounded in the belief that outstanding teachers are prepared for the classroom when they participate in a program that emphasizes high academic achievement, the importance of each child as an individual, and an understanding of the theories of learning and education.

Students gain experiences in school settings beginning in their freshman year. The experiences are designed to prepare students for student teaching, the "capstone" experience of the program. Students have opportunities to work with children in various learning activities in both urban and suburban environments.
