Elementary Education Major

Initial Programs Home

This major satisfies the teacher certification endorsement for elementary education. As it is less than a 60-credit major it requires a minor OR second major. There is not an option to complete this major without completing all Teacher Certification and Professional Education Program requirements, which include the Professional Education Program courses (49-52 credits).

Students who complete this major will be endorsed to teach in regular, self-contained elementary classrooms. EDLT 308, EDLT 309, EDLT 422, and EDEL 323 must be taken prior to EFC 480 (Student Teaching).
