B.S.Ed. in Elementary Education
The B.S. 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.
All School of Education undergraduates enter their chosen programs as a cohort of about 20 students. The cohort moves through specific designated courses with selected faculty, creating an active and engaged learning community.
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.
