About the Program

Elementary Education reflects what is known about the best practices in teacher education and is aligned with state and national standards for elementary school teacher preparation. Professional courses are grouped together and taken sequentially in 6 semester blocks. Each block has an associated Theory into Practice (TIP) field experience that allows students to apply subject matter knowledge and best practices in school, university, and community settings. The Elementary Education Plan of Study outlines the required courses to complete the degree for licensure.

For more information about the degree program, visit the COE Office of Advising and Recruiting. For teacher licensure information, visit the Office of Professional Preparation and Licensure.
