Elementary Education K-5
Elementary Education (K-5) is designed for undergraduate students interested in becoming educators for kindergarten through 5th grade.
Students in this program are eligible for licensure as K-5 teachers after successful completion of specific courses, participation in professional field work, passing a criminal background check and meeting all state licencure-requirements.
Students pursuing a degree in Elementary Education (K-5) must receive initial advisement through the Office of Student Services located in the Clemmer College (321 Warf-Pickel Hall). This office will establish the student's initial file, evaluate any previous coursework for applicability to Teacher Education requirements, and assist the student with initial program planning. (See Advisement to contact this office.)
Students who declare Education as a major will meet with an advisor in the Clemmer
College Advisement Services who will help them plan the completion of a core curriculum. As students move into
their education major courses, students will be assigned a departmental advisor who
will see them through the completion of their program. The requirements of the Elementary
Education (K-5) program include course work and a year-long Residency.
Please see the undergraduate catalog for degree requirements as well as the 4 year plan.
